That's an Internet address encapsulated in an X.400 address.

An X.400 address encapsulated in an Internet address might look
something like this.

    /S=smith/O=somecompany/ADMD=pipex/C=gb/@pipex.net

For (much!) more information, see RFC 1506 "A Tutorial on Gatewaying
between X.400 and Internet Mail" (which is extremely readable, IMHO).
