  • What companies were involved in the sending

Often our High Volume Bulk Mailing customers do not want recipients to know that they are using LuxSci or High Volume — they would prefer that the sending be “branded” so that it looks like messages are coming from their own service and servers.

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Frequently we are approached by customers who have automated systems that need to send out secured emails on demand and without any manual interaction.  These could be web site response systems for sensitive information, health care labs emailing results which need to meet HIPAA compliance, or other situations where the email messages must all be secured.
