Email Delivery Status Tracking …. for successes, failures, and bounces of all kinds

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

LuxSci automatically tracks the delivery status for all email messages sent via SMTP, WebMail, and the LuxSci API. This report indicates whether or not the messages were successfully delivered to each recipient’s email servers, if they failed to be accepted there for some reason, or they are still queued at LuxSci. For many purposes, this automatic delivery status tracking is more than sufficient.

A standard automatic delivery tracking process has one limitation. For the case where an email message is successfully delivered to the recipient’s servers but then later it bounces back to the sender, the message will show as “delivered” (because it was) and there will be no indication of the subsequent bounce.

The optional “Automatic SMTP Bounce Processing” feature takes care of this situation.

GDPR & Email: 10 Critical Questions & Answers for Compliance

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation which asserts and enforces protections on the personal information of EU citizens is on everyone’s minds these days. This is because it impacts any company anywhere in the world that interacts with citizens of the European Union (EU), even if that only means sending email messages to them.  The kicker … if you are found to be in non-compliance you could earn yourself a fine of 20 million euros or 4% of your gross annual revenue, whichever is higher.

Friday, February 9th, 2018

It happens to everyone who uses any email service: suddenly your email is no longer working. ¬†If it’s just for a few minutes or some scheduled time at night, it’s usually no big deal. ¬†However, if it’s in the middle of your work day and you rely on email, you may have a big problem.

Ask Erik: Is this email fake? How can I tell?

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

In a recent “Ask Erik” question, Eve asked:

“I received a copy of an email that someone claims they sent to me. They did not forward this apparent email they claim they sent to me. Rather they copied and pasted it into a current email.

However, I did not receive this email, and in all honesty this apparent copy of this email looks fake. I believe I could easily create this type of fake email myself. So, is there a way of telling whether someone has faked an email which they claim they sent to you? And, should I insist that the original email they claim they sent to be is forwarded to me and not copied and pasted?”
