Archive All Sent Marketing Email with the LuxSci High Volume Service

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Long available with LuxSci’s standard email services, users of LuxSci’s High Volume Bulk Outbound Email service can also have copies of all sent messages automatically BCC’ed to an email address of their choice (at any service provider to whom receipt of these messages is acceptable).

Collection of copies of all sent email messages is crucial for anyone who needs to have all sent email archived for backup, auditing, or compliance reasons.  If you are sending bulk email, transactional email, or marketing email in a healthcare context, HIPAA may apply and your messages all need to be archived.  The mass emailing must also be done in a HIPAA-compliant manner, such as using the LuxSci Premium High Volume sending services.

Transactional/Bulk email with ePHI in It? What to do about HIPAA

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

Case in pointA medical lab that needs/wants to send test results to patients via email.  This is:

  • Bulk email … possibly 100s or 1000s of messages/day
  • Transactional … every message is important and unique.
  • ePHI … every message contains private health information governed by HIPAA

Customers that have approached us looking for solutions for scenarios like this and others (e.g. medical news, appointment updates and reminders, etc.) have had problems managing this kind of electronic messaging because:

  1. Their own ISPs put limits on the maximum number of messages they can send in a day
  2. Most email marketing solutions and bulk mailing solutions do not have a HIPAA bulk email compliance component and thus are completely useless for sending ePHI of any kind.
  3. All messages must be encrypted in a HIPAA compliant way, making in house solutions difficult, especially when combined with #1.

LuxSci Spotlight Mailer – Advanced Email Marketing Campaign Management

Friday, May 31st, 2013

LuxSci’s High Volume bulk 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 High Volume SMTP service.

The service works with most every bulk mailing software package and even regular email programs like Thunderbird and Outlook. This makes it perfect for customers who already using some such program.  However, we have found that many customers do not have any tools for managing their bulk mailing campaigns and want a simple but powerful web based system for this purpose.

The LuxSci Spotlight Mailer is just that, an extremely feature rich, web-based, email marketing service that can be plugged into LuxSci High Volume, Premium High Volume, or regular outbound email service for you.

Why you should separate your business and your marketing email sending

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

A typical organization sends at least two very distinct classes of email messages: business email and marketing email.

Business email consists of all of the individual, personal messages sent by sales, support, billing and other departments to specific people.  These messages are generally more time sensitive; it is very important that the recipients actually receive them; these messages should not be filtered by any kind of spam filtering software, if possible.

Marketing email messages are similar messages sent in bulk to many people at once.  Examples of these include newsletters, notifications of blog updates, promotions and ads, status notices, etc.

In order for your business email to be as reliable as possible, the marketing email should be sent separately, through separate servers and maybe even on a separate domain name.  Here we will look at why.

High Volume Resellers Can Brand Their Own Bulk Email Service

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

LuxSci’s High Volume Bulk Emailing service enables users to send mass emails with high speed, reliability, and deliverability.

Resellers purchase quantities of sending and distribute these to their customer accounts, charging their customers their own rates for sending and for any additional value adds that they provide.

Resellers typically do not want their customers to know that LuxSci provides the back-end mailing service that they are selling… they would much rather present their own service as their own brand.  With Private Labeling for High Volume accounts, LuxSci enables just that!

Feedback Loops: Monitor your bulk email reputation

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Many major Internet Service Providers (e.g. AOL, Hotmail, MSN, Comcast, etc.) have FBLs “feedback loops” for reporting SPAM complaints by their users.  I.e. if a user “marks a message as Spam”, information about that message and the fact that it was considered “Spam” by the recipient can be sent back to the originating email server, for example LuxSci.

LuxSci has participated in feedback loops for a long time .  Now we have greatly extended our participation by:
