      Description

      Summary
      The mail task implementation that is available as part of the Activiti engine and is used in APS offers task fields that cannot be configured in the APS BPMN editor.

      As outlined at

      https://www.activiti.org/5.x/userguide/#bpmnEmailTaskUsage

      the mail task offers the fields ignoreException and exceptionVariableName but those are currently not configurable in the BPMN editor in APS and get ignored while importing a process with those mail task fields set other than defaults (see also attached missingMailTaskFields.png). Improve the BPMN editor and add those default mail task fields as task properties to make them configurablle by our customers.

      Steps to reproduce
      N/A

      Current behaviour
      The properties panel for mail tasks in the BPMN editor does not offer properties for ignoreException and exceptionVariableName.

      Desired behaviour
      The mail task in APS is using the engine implementation and the properties panel should offer all configurable elements for this type of activity.

      Business use case
      There are situations while executing a process where one can ignore exceptions while sending a mail task and the Activiti engine offers this flexibility whereas the APS BPMN editor does not offer it.
