It is possible for the owner of an eGate customer account to determine the access of the message to the recipient (if necessary, please ask which customer status you have), even if the recipient is not a Pranke customer (so-called gateway).

Please log in to eGate to search the sent messages for the message. Please refer to the FAQ “eGate User Information“.

If the message has the sent status ( please consider the article „eGate-Icons“),

then the message has reached your partner or his service provider.

The recipient location can be checked in the open message in the Raw Header register and this can be communicated to the recipient.


This can be checked by the responsible person of the converter (possibly a service provider) or the mail server of the recipient (often a service provider is connected between Pranke eGate and the end customer who may have error messages). The service provider customer (final recipient) would have to inquire about this.


The addressing of all accounts on eGate is always done via the Pranke Participant Number. This is a ten-digit unique number, which can be searched by name or GLN under the participant search at www.pranke.com. First, please enter the 10-digit eGate participant number, which is the local part of the e-mail address, i.e. the part before the @ sign, for example:2123456789.Then the domain part follows, it always reads:egate.pranke.comThe correct addressing then looks like this (example, please replace the local part with the respective TNR of the partner).


Pranke eGate customers with a so-called full account can send data via SMTP and retrieve data via POP3.

Here the server configuration:

SMTP: egate.pranke.com

POP: egate.pranke.com

For gateway accounts applies:

I send from the address stored in eGate for example edi@modehaus.org to for example: 2123456789@egate.pranke.com.
Messages sent from an address other than the one registered with Pranke will be rejected, the sender must be known to us, he is on a so-called whitelist.

For example, an attempt to send edi1@modehaus.org fails because we don’t know this address.

A special problem is the BATV feature of some sender mail servers, since it always generates different sender addresses,

Those who have a PARTICIPANT NUMBER (TNR) can exchange data via eGate. But not everyone can reach all other eGate participants:

  • eGate Account
    Pranke customers get an eGate account. For a monthly fee depending on the transmission volume, Pranke customers can send EDI data to or receive data from any eGate participant.

    • Pranke customers who obtain their eBiss software from a Pranke partner should first contact this partner with all questions about eGate, too.
  • Gateway addresses
    To ensure that Pranke customers can actually reach any partner of their choice, TNRs are also issued to those participants who use a different transmission path/provider. Pranke takes care of the routing via so-called gateways. This type of eGate participant is therefore called a gateway participant. Gateway participants can only exchange EDI data with Pranke customers, but not with other gateway participants.

    • If the desired partner requires the use of the AS2 protocol or only has an X.400 address, the Pranke customer may incur additional costs. Symbols may indicate this in the eGate participant search.
