Just bear in mind the restriction in the POP3 RFC (1725) that limits
arguments to commands to 40 characters.

Also, if you have a lot of clients using legacy software, you will find
that some old versions of software won't allow usernames including an
'@' character, and other software enforces length limits of less than
40 characters.
