API Enhancements for DKIM Automation

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2020

DKIM, Domain Keys identified Mail, is a critical component to ensuring good INBOX delivery of email messages for day-to-day email, email marketing, and transactional email.  DKIM digitally signs outbound email so that the message recipients can verify that the messages originated from email servers authorized to send email from the sender.  I.e., it helps recipients identify and discard forged and fraudulent email messages while keeping legitimate ones.

API Enhancements for DKIM

In order to use DKIM with LuxSci, customers need to:

  1. Have LuxSci generate keys for each sending domain
  2. Update the DNS settings for each domain to publish the DKIM public key.

See LuxSci’s Help for our general DKIM setup instructions for more details.  These steps are pretty quick and easy, unless you have a large number of domains that you are sending email from.

To help such customers automate their workflow and manage their domains, LuxSci’s API has been augmented to enable management of DKIM keys for LuxSci customers.  The API now permits:

  1. Creation of new DKIM keys for new domains.
  2. Downloading the DKIM information needed for the DNS configuration.
  3. Deletion of DKIM keys for domains no longer in use.

Together with LuxSci’s other API endpoints, LuxSci customers can automate the addition and deletion of domains, email aliases, users, and now DKIM settings.  LuxSci is committed to continually expanding its API capabilities to enable and support automated workflows and processes.

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.

HaveIBeenPwned? Selecting passwords that are not known to Hackers

Friday, September 6th, 2019

Users tend to reuse passwords to make their life simple.  This includes reusing the same passwords across multiple sites and using the same passwords for years and years.

This is bad of course.  We see it in the news so frequently that no one is surprised that millions of accounts are compromised at companies every week.  What happens to this compromised data?  Very often it is dumped online where anyone can see it.  In fact, a vast collection of compromised information from usernames and passwords to addresses to employment histories and more is or has been available online related to all of these compromised web accounts.

LuxSci Announces: Secure Email Marketing

Friday, May 31st, 2013

WESTWOOD, MA, May 31, 2013 — LuxSci® announces the recent launch of Secure Email Marketing, a unique solution to combined need for email marketing, patient engagement, and patient communication while remaining fully HIPAA compliant.

LuxSci’s existing Secure High Volume mailing service enables sending vast quantities of email for marketing and transactional purposes. This service is quick and easy to use and includes lots of reporting features. However, you still have to use some email program or service for composing your messages, managing your mailing lists, and managing their sending through the Secure High Volume API/SMTP sending service.  We have found that many customers do not have any tools for managing their bulk mailing campaigns and want a simple, powerful web-based system for this purpose.

The LuxSci Secure Email Marketing is just that, an extremely feature rich, web-based, email marketing service that can is plugged directly into LuxSci Secure High Volume, so that all of these messages are sent securely.

“Email marketing is a commodity — there are literally hundreds of companies that will happily help you send your marketing messages and track the success of your campaigns.   LuxSci’s Secure Marketing service is the only one to do all of that, but in the context of HIPAA compliance and ease of use.  This is a game changer for health care.” says Erik Kangas, CEO of LuxSci.
