Thanks for the reply. Let me try to me a little more forthcoming on the
We have set up our RT session to use LDAP, and to NOT auto create.
We had a ticket where the owner did a "reply" and added an outside email
address to the "Cc".
This 'outside' person replied to the ticket and was getting <MAILER DAEMON>
about every hour on the hours or so.
We bounced the RT session and that stopped it.

is kicked out due to either LDAP or privileges. All this sounds good so far.

loop from happening.
That's all I can figure at the moment.
My questions was oriented around rt-mailgate in hopes of finding out of it
had some sort of re-generative <MAILER DAEMON> of retry for a number of
times or something that I could set to make it happen only once.

I'm thinking the REGexp setting will resolve the problem.
