Hi,

First of all, great package. I'm using it as part of the qmailtoaster distribution (http://www.qmailtoaster.org/).


However, I was wondering: is there a particular reason you restricted the "local-part" of the e-mail to 32 characters instead of the RFC 2821 specified limit of 64? It looks like domains are also limited to 64 instead of 255:
http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2821.html
(See "4.5.3.1 Size limits and minimums")

Further, when I created an alias with greater than 32 characters, valias simply truncated the extra characters without warning me that there was a problem, so I thought everything was ok!

Vadduser does warn, which is good.

---------
# vadduser -v
version: 5.4.17
...
$ vadduser -r '[EMAIL PROTECTED]'
Error: user name too long
---------
$ valias -i [EMAIL PROTECTED] [EMAIL PROTECTED]
# No error.  Must be ok.
$ valias -s mydomain.com
[EMAIL PROTECTED] -> [EMAIL PROTECTED]
# ^^^ Surprise!!
---------
$ valias -v
version: 5.4.17
---------
mysql> desc valias;
