All of these emails that RT sends are controlled by Scrips and
generate content from a Template.

I suspect you want to go to 
Tools -> Configuration -> Queues -> Blocks
        Look at what is configured on that QUeue
        Look at the content of the templates

You may want a Queue Level Admin Correspondence template on this
Queue, or you could just make the Netops folks Queue Ccs instead of
AdminCcs, especially since they're never logging in to RT.

If they're going to stay AdminCcs and really can't deal with an empty
To line, you may want to look into
