Hi Bob
Louis has the tnc in kiss mode and we are confused as to the exact syntax to
send to generate an email in the I gate system. To test the system how do
you create C0 from the key board?

Are you going to the amsat conference?

Confusing wording.  There is no such thing as a "connection" on APRS.  If
you mean that you are being digipeated by the digi, then "hitting" might be
a better word.

Just send a packet in this format:

:EMAIL....:emailladdress at whatever.com message goes here

The .... are spaces to pad the destination address always to 9 bytes.
