Yes, that would be the ideal solution, and I would dearly love to have
that. From what I've seen so far, and from what people have said on this
list, it doesn't seem like RT can do that. If there's a way, I think
everyone who works at this company would greatly appreciate that knowledge.
I'm not good enough with Perl to delve into a custom email parser or
anything, but do you know of a way or extension that offers this
functionality? Thanks.
