When the unknown_user=create option is set, this task fails silently when the account it tries to create is too long (somewhat related to IssueID #2719). It would be nice if it was possible to extend the maximum length of the login in the administration interface, or allow you to specify the format of the login name created in the incoming email settings (i.e 'firstname.lastname' or everything before the '@',) but at the very least it should log when it fails because of this.

It does not exactly silently fail. You should see an error message in your log file (see: source:/trunk/app/models/mail_handler.rb@5815#L69).
Anyway, I agree that it should be handled in a cleaner way.
