But do those emails follow the RFCs? In particular, do they have
a full set of both MUST and SHOULD headers?

As mentioned, I've tried fogBugz and changed supplier to avoid having
to use it. I'm not sure if it was fogBugz or the supplier that was
broken. It doesn't much matter when it's costing money.
RT will do almost all of the above (email notifications and receipt,
automatic task creation, email from a case, subject-line linking and
you can specify the prefix - watch the hilarity when two fogBugz
systems email each other), but I think the project categoriser thing
is an add-on and we use our regular spam filters (building it into
each email-connected application seems wasteful).
Hope that helps,
