      Description

      As documeneted in the Developer Documentaiton, there are only 15 characters left for the mailbox name. (RFC5232 allows a maximum of 64 characters, but 49 are used fot the generated subaddress). There is no explanation and no validation of this limit in the site administration.

      Steps to reproduce:

      • Go to Site administration > Server > Incoming mail configuration > Mail settings.
      • See there is no mention of the limit of 15 characters.
      • Set the Mailbox name to "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" (16 characters or more) and press "Save changes".
      • No error message is shown and the mailbox name is saved.

      Expected result:

      • An explanation of the limit of 15 charecters in the Mailbox configuration.
      • An error message saying the mailbox name is not valid.
