Well, since docomo's phones limit the e-mail To: field to 30 characters,
subtracting the length of "@docomo.ne.jp" from it leaves 17 characters
for a docomo e-mail address that other docomo users can mail to. The
maximum length lf the LHS of a j-phone e-mail address that a docomo user
can still send mail to is 19 characters. But J-phone users might be able
to create long addresses if they don't need to receive mail from docomo

Are you asking about e-mail addresses that allow full interoperability,
or just the minimum of the maximums of the major carriers?

I'd also be curious as to why you want this information....
