Permission to creat request

I have installed the latest version of rt on a fresh RedHat 6.2.
I have created a queue called testq and a made myself a user and made that
user an admin of the queue. I have also checked the 'Allow non-members to
create requests" yet, I cannot submit e-mail to create a request from a
non-member or member account. Both result in the e-mail response below.
I can submit Mail commands to validate myself and cuase an action. This
results in first an error message like the one below in the first e-mail
response from the system, then an email responding to the commands I sent.

For some reason rt sees everyone as a non-member and ignores the ‘Allow
non-members’ setting.

the alias seems to be correct:

testq: |“/usr2/rt/bin/rt-mailgate general correspond”

The only thing I can think of is an install issue. I installed
php4/mod-perl/mysql/ etc. from rpm. Everything else is
working well and I can create requests via the web interface.

I have dug completely through the docs, and every one the rt mailling
lists. I have found several requests for help on this or similar issues
going back to earlier versions of rt,but no solution. I have also seen
requests to add some notes on this problem to the FAQ, but the FAQ is not

Please advise.

testq, not general.

This has to be the name of the queue.
