[rt-users] CC Reply creates ticket

	I concur with Todd. Actually, we modified our templates to include the 
instruction to NOT use "ReplyAll" when responding to an E_mail from RT 
in ANY WAY. Of course, we also include some instructions on how to reply 
so that RT gets a copy AND everyone as well without creating a new 
ticket. There doesn't seem to be a button to push or an easy scrip to 
write, just simple instructions that fairly intelligent users should 
understand. If they don't, we just point them to the instructions they 
apparently didn't read.
