E-mail connectivity

How it works

E-mail connectivity is the connection type for market participants who exchange data on a low to medium-frequency basis and have their own software application for message processing and creation.

In these cases, the participant connects to the mailbox provided via IMAP and SMTP. Use of the e-mail connectivity is only possible for up to about 200 messages per day (200 metering points), depending on message volume. The market participant receives messages as .xml (extensible mark-up language) files attached to an e-mail and can process them individually in the market participant’s own software applications.

The mailbox provided can only be used for purposes of energy data exchange. No e-mails can be sent to e-mail addresses outside the energy data exchange.

Authentication is done by means of a username and password.
