Hello,

For those who want to send to a private channel,

1) replace the "@" by "-" in the Telegram.mqh at line 1009 and line 1010 (see attached image),

2) in the mq4 file, you put your channel token starting by -1000xxxx like this: InpChannelName="-10000xxxx";//Channel Name

and you should get the messages after setting your channel to private.

Good luck.

Still does not work ,for inpChannelName do you still use the channel Name or chat ID ?
