It’s good to see another Slackware devotee here. I’ve recently
installed RT on Slack 8 and learning its intricacies.
BTW, you are correct; Slack does alias Mailer-Daemon to root. I’m
trying to track down one such error right now. Fortunately, it did
not get sent back to RT.

I solved this here by adding an entry to /etc/aliases as follows:
YMMV, of course. I’m using Slackware 8, with Exim as my MTA - that may or
may not have an impact on how effective the above fix is. You could also
redirect the Mailer-Daemon alias to /dev/null or to any other convenient
place, if you have no interest in being informed of such errors.
IIRC the default Slackware sendmail package does include an alias for
Mailer-Daemon, redirecting it to root? I’m no longer sure though - last time
I installed sendmail on Slackware was back in the good old days of Slackware
2… That’s where I got the idea for the above fix from, at any rate.
Hope that helps,

Subject: [rt-users] mailer daemon email
A message was sent to an incorrect email address from RT 2.0.7. The
mailer-daemon sent the usual message stating that the address does not
exist, whereupon RT sent a reply to the new mailer-daemon user. Is there a
way to keep RT from sending these messages to the mailer-daemon?
