Setting --no-permission-check in the mail receiver allows creating issues and probably other objects in closed and archived projects. This is probably not what this option is intended for.

Thank you. We are currently working on another patch that would introduce a different Error class for this case. This would be useful for plugins that need to differentiate between "this is not possible in that project" and "this is not possible for this user".

Could you please hold back on applying this patch? Do you think having different Error classes for those 2 cases could be useful? We will propose another one shortly.

Please see the attached patch. It adds subclasses for UnauthorizedAction that allows backwards compatibility for code using UnauthorizedAction but still allows differentiating the error cases.
