What is Administrative Management Domain (ADMD)

ADMD in X.400 messaging, is a message-handling system (MHS) that is managed by a registered private agency. Administrative Management Domains (ADMDs) are usually large public telecommunications carriers such as MCI WorldCom and AT&T.

This is in contrast to a Private Management Domain (PRMD), which represents a message-handling system managed by a private corporation. In the X.400 world, PRMDs cannot communicate directly with each other; instead, they must communicate through ADMDs.
