It is not really stated clearly in the documentation, but here is what the mail handlers do. They scrape the mail header and look at the Sender address. That email address is then searched against the users in JIRA. If there is a match, the issue is created and the Reporter is set as the user that matches that email address.
Looking at this another way, you need to have the Sender email address match the email address associated with your user account in order to have an issue created with you as the Reporter. If the email address is not attached to an account in JIRA, the mail is ignored.
To resolve this, you will need to update the email addresses associated with each user to the new email addresses.
