Safe Family Email with LuxSci Parental Controls

Monday, January 20th, 2014

LuxSci’s email services are versatile, as well as secure. We offer solutions to many problems and meet a diverse assortment of specialized needs.  One important niche well-served by LuxSci’s flexible and highly configurable system is that of parental control — specifying exactly what email should be sent and received by children and keeping tabs on that email, while not restricting the parent’s (administrator’s) email usage.

This article highlights the many options available to configure an account for parental control.  As each parent’s requirements differ, each parent may wish to choose a different combination of settings.  No problem! LuxSci is infinitely configurable.

You should start by ordering a LuxSci email hosting account with your own domain name (i.e. your-family.com) and Premium Email Filtering.  Once you have a LuxSci email account, and have created users for your family members, you can proceed with the following configuration ideas to make your account family friendly and safe.

Control Email Forwarding with TLS-Only Restriction

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

LuxSci has added two new features to help administrators manage the forwarding of email in their accounts so that they can meet HIPAA and other regulatory requirements and at the same time easily control the actions of their users:

  • Globally restricting email forwarding to only recipients whose email servers support SMTP TLS for message transport encryption, and
  • Globally restricting users from managing their own email forwarding settings.

New: Restrict Which Email Addresses Your Users can Receive Email From

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

LuxSci’s new “Sender Restriction” feature allows account and domain administrators to exert firm control over which email is delivered to their users.  When enabled, this feature permits the specification of:

  • An “allowed sender list” of domains and/or email addresses.  Email from anyone not on the list will be refused (bounced back to the sender with an error).
  • An “denied sender list” of domains and/or email addresses.  Email from anyone on this list will be refused (bounced back to the sender with an error).

IP Restrictions for Public WebAide Feed Security

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

LuxSci users with Blogs, Links, Notes and Documents WebAides can publish the information in these tools as a public RSS 2.0 feed.  Similarly, LuxSci users can publish their Calendars as a public iCal file.  These public files can be password protected.

However, it is often the case that when automating data transfer (i.e. having your Blog show up as a page in your internal Wiki) the programs that read the RSS and/or iCal feed might not support password protection. So, how can you ensure privacy and security without using password protection?

Stop the Mail! Restrict Users from Emailing to Certain Addresses

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

LuxSci has supported restricting to whom users can send email messages for quite some time.  However, this implementation behaves like a “locked down allow list”.  I.e. you can set it up so that users can send only to a certain set of addresses and/or domains.  We have had several requests for a feature to allow users to send to anyone except certain addresses or domains (i.e. a recipient deny list).

LuxSci has updated the “Recipient Restriction” settings that can be configured on each domain so that administrators can choose to have any of the following:

  • No restrictions
  • Allow List Style – “Send only to these folks” restrictions
  • Deny List Style – “Send to anyone but these folks” restrictions.
