Re: limit on length of email address?

RFC 2821 imposes minimums on the number of characters an SMTP
system must support in the local-part and the Domain.   For most
purposes, those numbers are the maximums you are looking for.

In RFC 2821 4.1.2, I see
   Mailbox = Local-part "@" Domain

Is there a limit somewhere on the length of Mailbox,
Local-part, and/or Domain?

Thank you,
