I don't think that's going to help me.
Let me give you a scenario:

Person A sends a mail to my queue with B and C in CC. RT sends autoreply to
all of them. Then B thinks there should be something added so he replies to
A's mail instead of autoreply mail.
Now I have 2 different tickets created for the same subject by A and B.
