Yes, ARINC can provide users with an AFTN eight digit address. Carriers with a three letter ICAO code can provide this information to ARINC and ARINC will request an eight digit address on their behalf. For carriers without an ICAO code, ARINC may allocate an eight digit address using ARINC’s ICAO designator (XAA), e.g., AFTN address KANPxxxD.
Yes, STMP /POP3 and HTTPS may be used at the same time. Both are included with the mailbox. Most customers use one or the other, but both are available.
Simply use the same address to send messages to as you would with SITATEX. IATA TypeB addresses are frequently referred to as SITA and SITATEX addresses, or sometimes as TELEX address but in the air travel industry they are all the same. ARINC and SITA have a gateway that enables delivery across both networks as shown in the simplified diagram below.
Yes, various migration strategies are available.
Yes, AviNet Mail users may send and receive messages to/from SITATEX users.
Yes, simply notify ARINC of the issue and provide as much detail as possible related to the missing messages (e.g. MessageID, date/time range). ARINC will work to recover and re-queue missing messages that all go through the mail server. In the case of an outage, the user can access or download the message(s) once the connection is restored. In addition, ARINC archives message for six months and can retransmit if/when necessary.
The QK and QD are message priorities. QU is high priority, QD is low priority, and the others are "normal" or standard priority.
Yes, Type B messages can be sent to SMS and Fax devices.
AviNet Mail provides an ICAO template to make it easy to send an AFTN message to an ICAO eight digit address.
Provide ARINC with the cell/mobile phone number and it can be mapped to an IATA Type B address. The user can then send Type B messages from a cell phone or mobile device to a Type B address and vice versa.
Yes, messages may be saved as a HTML page (when using the web interface) or saved to a local folder/directory (when using The AviNet Mail Desktop Client or any other POP/IMAP enabled mail client).
For AviNet E-Mail users, there is no limit to the number of recipients in a message. For a Type B message, there is a limit of 49 recipients per message. Messages from AviNet Mail to the Type B messaging network that include more than 49 Type B recipients will be split up into multiples of 49 recipients per message. For example, a message with 213 Type B message recipients generated in AviNet Mail, will be split up into five messages – four with 49 recipients each and the last one with 17 recipients.
AviNet Mail user friendly templates enable customers to enter the seven letter IATA address. The templates are available on both the webmail and desktop client. Without the ARINC template, you must use the domain of @adns.aero following the seven character IATA address.
Yes, messages have a date and time stamp for information and tracing.
Yes, if there are multiple addresses assigned to one mailbox when a message is sent, the originating address will always be the same address (primary address that was assigned to the AviNet mailbox account).
Yes, AviNet Mail has a function to send to multiple addresses.
Yes, using the AviNet Multi-Transport Template.
The originator will receive a response of NAA (no action address) or a non-delivery report.
