Email Distribution Lists at LuxSci

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

We are frequently asked how to create and manage email distribution lists at LuxSci.

Distribution lists are email addresses, like “allstaff@your-domain.com” that accept inbound email and then forward (distribute) those messages to one or more different email addresses, so that everyone on the list gets a copy of the message.

At LuxSci there are three ways to setup a distribution list, each having its own particular benefits.  These include:

  1. Email Aliases distributing to multiple arbitrary addresses
  2. Groups of people in your account 
  3. Custom rules that forward email only under certain circumstances

Email Alias Management Enhancements

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

LuxSci has re-tooled its email alias management interface from the ground up to make it faster, more powerful, and more consistent with many of its other administrative interfaces.

Email aliases are addresses in your domain that do not correspond to a physical user, but which may deliver email to one or more addresses or deny email with a custom message.  E.g. “sales@yourdomain.com” might not be an actual person — it might just forward email to a few of your employees.  The LuxSci Email Alias Management tools enables administrators to create, edit, and delete these kinds of email flow rules for all email addresses in all domains in their account — Aliases, Domain Catchall Rules, User email forwarding rules, and WebAide User Group mailing list rules — all in once place.

Control for Your Email Distribution Lists

Friday, January 15th, 2010

We have previously discussed the various options for email distribution lists in our post: Three Kinds of Distribution Lists.  However, we are often asked how to make distribution lists with special properties, such as:

  • Only people who belong to the list can send to the list
  • Have messages sent to the list be spam filtered
  • Only forward messages with certain content in them to the list
  • Block messages from certain people or with certain content in them
  • Add custom headers to messages sent to the list
  • Etc. –  the list goes on

These are all very doable at LuxSci by using a “4th” way of making a distribution list — using custom email filters.

New Feature: High Volume Outbound Email Service

Monday, March 9th, 2009

High Volume EmailWe have seen a steadily growing demand from existing and potential clients to send legitimate bulk mailings to their clients and subscribers.  LuxSci’s policy has always been to deny such requests and pass them along to a strategic partner, or to allow them on a case by case basis at a premium cost after carefully reviewing the intent.  Why? So that the outbound email servers used by our premium customers do not get on blacklists.  You don’t want to mix mass mailing with normal business correspondence!

To meet this demand, LuxSci now offers the High Volume Outbound Email Service.
