SecureVideo Updates for Enhanced Security

Sunday, April 5th, 2020
The following changes are being made effective immediately to the LuxSci SecureVideo service, which is build on top of Zoom for Healthcare.  These changes mitigate many of the issues discovered in the Zoom service in the past week.

NEW sessions will launch with passwords

Sessions created from now onward will open with a meeting password embedded into the launch sequence. You and your video participants will not need to know the password.

If you have participants calling into the session by telephone, they will need to enter a passcode to enter sessions now. This passcode will be displayed in the same space as the rest of the dial-in information:

Email Templates for SMTP and API Secure Email Sending

Wednesday, March 18th, 2020

Server-side email templates that can be utilized when sending email messages through LuxSci’s APIs and LuxSci’s SMTP services are now available.  In particular, users can:

  1. Create and manage up to 100 templates per user through LuxSci’s web site or via API commands.
    1. Templates can not only define the subject and bodies of the messages that use them, they can also control how these messages will be encrypted (or not).
  2. Send messages using templates via API commands or SMTP — so message content can be retrieved from the server-side templates rather than sent with every message
  3. Use dynamic place holders so the template content can be customized on a per-message basis (i.e., like “mail merge”).
  4. Send unique per-message attachments that will be attached to the template-derived messages.

That’s it — templates made simple.

Enterprise-Grade High Volume Secure Email Sending API

Tuesday, February 4th, 2020

LuxSci has released an enhancement to its REST API targeted at fast, reliable, large-scale email sending.   While LuxSci’s API has had features for secure email sending for many years, the new API call is specifically designed with the needs of enterprise email sending in mind.

The new “Send Email” High Volume API call enables:

  1. Pipelining: Send up to 1,000 email messages per request
  2. Send to up to 1,000 email recipients per request
  3. Works for sending HIPAA-compliant secure email or regular email
  4. Load Balancing: Distributes your outbound email messages across your multiple dedicated outbound email servers.
  5. Fail Over: If you have multiple outbound email servers and one is down for some reason, the API will automatically re-try sending through other servers.
  6. Queuing: If you are depositing email into the API faster that your email servers can send, or if your email servers are down for some reason (e.g., maintenance), the messages will be accepted, queued, and delivered automatically as soon as possible.
  7. Tracking: Email delivery, bounce, click, feed-back loop, and open tracking works just like it does for messages sent via SMTP.
  8. Encryption and all other email sending features currently supported by direct SMTP sending (e.g., tag lines, encryption “Opt Out”, etc.) are supported by the API.
  9. SMTP Limits. Your overall API-based email sending is limited only by the number of recipients or messages to whom you are normally allowed to send via SMTP.

Global Address Books of your Account Users

Saturday, January 4th, 2020

LuxSci has updated its Address Books with a new feature enabling administrators to create address books that are automatically populated with, and synchronized with, the contact information of all the users in the account or of all the users in selected domains.   If your organization has many people in it, this feature, combined with the ability to share these address books with everyone, makes it simple to have a global, shared, always updated address book for your entire organization.

This shared address book can then be accessed over ActiveSync, CardDAV, and used in WebMail for email composition.

Here is how it works.
