Premium Email Filtering and Archival Enhancements

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

LuxSci and its partner MX Logic have released a series of updates to LuxSci’s Premium Email Filtering and Premium Email Archival services.  These changes include:

  • Improved look and feel for the Premium Email Filtering portal.
  • Localization of these portal pages into many languages such as: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Korean
  • New archival import services to facilitate import of historical data sets larger than 50 GB into the archival system.
  • New Outlook 2007 integration with Premium Email Archival permits searching for, viewing, and saving copies of archived messages directly through Outlook 2007.  This Outlook add-in can be downloaded via the Online Help area of the archival portal.
  • New “backscatter” filter allows administrators to block the receipt of all inbound bounce messages (available under the inbound policies – anti-spam – classification – more options area).

For complete details of all of the changes to the Premium Filtering and Archival services, see this service enhancement announcement from MX Logic.

Updates to Email Link Click Protection

Monday, January 26th, 2009

LuxSci’s Premium Email Filtering services include an optional "Click Protection" module that allows administrators to intercept the action of a user clicking on a link in an email message in order to  a) give the users warning,  b) log where people click through to, c) block clicking, etc.  This feature helps protect end users from phishing attacks that come in via email, where malicious senders try to trick users into going to fake URLs so they can steal their identity or payment data (i.e. the classic fraudulent emails purporting to be from "PayPal" come to mind as a prime example).

On Tuesday, January 27th, an administrative option within ClickProtect that currently tracks URL click throughs while allowing users to visit websites linked within email messages without a warning is being removed.

LuxSci’s Custom Mail Filters: Case Studies

Monday, December 1st, 2008

With the amount of business done via email these days, it’s not uncommon to receive dozens if not hundreds of messages a day. If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t like them all stacking up in your inbox, then you’re probably already familiar with the concept of mail filters or rules. A filter is like your own personal mail elf, quickly sorting, organizing, or discarding your incoming mail according to your explicit instructions. This makes it easy to manage high volumes of incoming mail automatically without having to manually move, forward, or delete even a single message. Almost all filters can match a given text string in the subject or body of the message and then take one of these basic actions; however LuxSci’s Custom Mail Filters (included with all email hosting accounts) provide an even more extensive list of capabilities:
