Scrip to stop jobs in RT being created if they don't originate from a specific domain

Hi guys,

I’m interested in having RT only auto create jobs that come from a specific
domain, e.g. *@foo.com. I imagine this can be done in a scrip (complete
newbie to the scrip’ing process though). Has anyone done this before, and
if so, can you point me in the right direction?
Appreciate any thoughts/comments.

Regards,
Carl.

Scrips run after a ticket is created, so while they can change the
ticket status, they can’t actually stop creation.

Stop it before you call rt-mailgate by having your MTA bounce or
dispose of mail from unauthorized senders. It’s much easier to do it
there, rather than deal with writing an RT MailPlugin.
