submit/create: yes
update: yes
close, assign, ...: you can do some of this with extensions like
"Command by email" (see http://wiki.bestpractical.com/view/Extensions).

you can use RTFM (RT Faq Manager http://www.bestpractical.com/rtfm)
along with RT.

Well you can try out stock RT with a quick install (won't be too
difficult if you're a sysadmin) and see how much it fits your needs.

If it fits 90% of your needs, maybe it's enough. If really there is some
needed things missing (not in existing RT extensions too), then you will
need a bit of perl knowledge to ack RT and see that we can do near to
everything with it ;)

else, there is companies around that can give you support on RT ;)
