LDAP and auto create users

Can anyone help me? I need to be able to auto create users on
submission. I already have the LDAP working correctly for registered
users, but when a non registered user sends an email I get :

RT could not load a valid user, and RT’s configuration does not allow
for the creation of a new user for this email blah.

You might need to grant ‘Everyone’ the right ‘CreateTicket’ for the
queue general.

I have granted Everyone create ticket for general, but this does not
seem to work, I have replaced the User_Local.pm with that from the LDAP
wiki, and configured the RT_SiteConfig.pm (which seems to work as I can
login OK)

I have listed the log outout and the RT_SiteConfig below. I use RHEL 4
and RT 3.4.5.

Many thanks,

Neil.

Output from rt.log with debug set.
