Maximum length for email addresses for external domains with catch all?

I tried to reset the password of my an online account, but despite trying multiple times (30+) I did not receive any email. After changing spam setup, I tried to use a shorter email address (from 51 characters to 26), it did work.

I frequently use long email adresses. What is the maximum length of an email address for mailbox.org in when catch all is configured for an external domain?

The technical limit I find is at least 254 characters, i.e. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/386294/what-is-the-maximum-length-of-a-valid-email-address#574698 .

Had a bright moment and done some further testing. Mails from my work account do arrive when I send them to an email address with 60+ characters. Probably the problem is in somewhere in the online platform I tried to reset a password for.

Solved, sorry for bugging you :)
