With reference to the example shown below the service type is normally shown by the equipment type (in this case Inmarsat C). The Inmarsat Mobile Number (IMN) is shown as a unique identifier next to the equipment type ( 450381677 )

The example below shows the service C-E-Mail. Below that the actual shoreside e-mail address registered for the service is shown ( jonc@electrotech.net.au in this case ). Please note this service enables registered shoreside e-mail addresses to send e-mails to shipside standard or mini-C equipment. It is a shore-to-ship e-mail service  (ship to shore direction is an integral function of the Inmarsat equipment and requires no additional registrations).
