If you have a gateway account and use x400 as the transmission path, you must send the messages to the x400 eGate address. This address is in principle always the same, you only have to enter the respective participant number of the trading partner on eGate in the surname (S). You can find this on our participant search at www.pranke.com or you can ask your trading partner for it.

The following is the structure of the currently valid X.400 address of an eGate participant when sending from the X.400 network of Deutsche Telekom:

X400 Bezeichnung X400 Key Value
Country C= de
Adminstrative Domain A= viat-smtp
Private Domain P= com
Organisation O= pranke
Organisation Unit 1 OU1= egate
Surname S= <TNr>

For ‘Surname’, the TNr (= participant number) must be entered here. So for the eGate user 2800999999 the gateway address is therefore: C=de; A=viat-smtp; P=com; O=pranke; OU1=egate; S=2800999999

When sending outside the X.400 network of Deutsche Telekom:

X400 Bezeichnung X400 Key Value
Country C= DE
Adminstrative Domain A= VIAT
Organisation O= PRANKE
Surname S= EGATE
