We simply use mod_rewrite to redirect everyone *except* the server itself
to https.  This way when rt-mailgate calls http://rt.ourdomain/com it is
not forced to use https while everyone else is.

# Redirect everyone except the rt-mailgate and RT utilities to https
   RewriteEngine On
   RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !^10\.10\.227\.209$
   RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ https://rt.ourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

The is the IP address of the server according to ifconfig
eth0 in this case.
