There’s no string limit per se in Mail V, but when I saw this report
I checked the Mail V code and saw that if you have a user name longer
than 50 characters and use the SMTP AUTH LOGIN mechanism there could
be a login failure. I can’t speak for iNet.

If you run the debug version of Mail V you can log the session to see
exactly what is being sent. (See the user guide.)
