Just my two cents,

  On sendmail when you rewrite you need to setup MASQUERADE and GENERICSTABLE options, some mailservers block when the field "from" mismatch (Gmail doesn't but Office365 will).

  BTW I prefer postfix for this work, you should be good only with smtp_generic_maps.

Remember it's trivially easy to write scripts which forge email headers, in most environments.  All you need to do is set the From: header to the user's email address, and RT will do the right thing with it.  You can do this trivially using sendmail on the UNIX command line:

$ /usr/lib/sendmail -t << EOF
From: Barack Obama <president at whitehouse.gov>
To: tim at example.com
Subject: Fake email

This email is not really from Barack Obama...
