- What programs & devices does LuxSci work with? Do I have to download something?
- LuxSci email works with any email program on any computer or mobile device, including
Outlook, Mac Mail, Thunderbird, and the default email programs in iOS and Android. LuxSci
email, and SecureLine email encryption, work through secure IMAP, SMTP, and POP connections from your programs to the server
— there is never any need to download special programs, Apps, or plugins.
Additionally, LuxSci provides an option for using ActiveSync
for real-time synchronization of email, contacts, calendars and more with your mobile devices
and recent versions of Outlook / Windows Mail.
- Are email messages backed up?
- LuxSci includes 7x daily on-site and 4x weekly off-site backups of all of your email,
web, and other data. You can request restores as needed
for free. Very frequent restore requests or very complex ones may incur a sur-charge. Read more about backups at LuxSci.
The daily and weekly snapshots also protect your sensitive data against server failure -- we can
always restore all of your data. See more on LuxSci infrastructure and reliability.
LuxSci also offers Email Archival for saving
copies of all inbound and outbound email -- copies that cannot be edited or deleted and which are saved for
up to 10 years.
- How much disk space do I get?
- A shared business-class email hosting account comes with 50GB of disk space
that is shared among all of your users (we do not limit space on a per-user basis; though you can impose such limits yourself). If you exceed your limit or
want to buy more space, we charge $0.75/GB. See also: Business-class vs Enterprise Class
and Standard Shared Hosting: Disk space limits.
Dedicated server customers can get 10 GB up to 9,000 GB of space per server. Dedicated
is the way to go if you have large-scale storage needs.
- What are the limits for email sending, receiving, etc.?
- LuxSci permit you to send and receive email messages up to 200 MB in
total size (for customers with Email Archival, the limit is 50MB/message).
Email hosting customers can send up to 300 email messages/day; each
message can be set to up to 1000 recipients. These messages are not to be
used for bulk emailing of any kind (per our acceptable use policy). For
email marketing and large scale sending needs, we offer a separate High Volume email sending service (which can also be "tacked
on" to your business email hosting account so you can pay for extended
There is no explicit limit on the number of messages that you can
receive; however, the receipt of large quantities of messages "all at once"

email to be automatically suspended to protect our servers from inbound
email abuse and "mail bombs". If you need to receipve of large numbers of
messages in a short time, LuxSci provides dedicated inbound email
There are no limits on the number of users that can be in your account
or the number of addresses that can be in your address book.
We do not limit the number of messages that you can store in your
email folder, except that (a) larger folders are slower to use than
smaller folders, and (b) no email folder can contain more than 1 million
messages (but any folder with more than 100,000 could be pretty slow to
- Where are your servers located?
