Nima, creating a party_id record in OpenACS is not the same thing as "creating a new account for an unregistered user"! So which does the acs-mail-lite package actually do?

Whether creating a new party_id is desirable or not probably depends on the use case. I have never looked at the acs-mail-lite package at all, but my instinct is that creating party_id's on the fly should be possible, but not required. My reasoning is that acs-mail-lite is basically low level infrastructure, not an application; let the actual application decide which behavior it wants.
