[rt-users] Emails to Queue Alias, still merge to other queue

This may not be the best solution, but it would be a solution.

If you had each queue in it's own instance, or at least grouping the queues
into their own instances of RT in which each queue in RTinstance1 would
never have an email forwarded to any other queue in RTinstance1...

Again, probably isn't what you'd like to do, but it is possible to prevent
the problem you are having by doing this.
Mike.
