SMTP at LuxSci
LuxSci provides its email customers with SMTP servers that they can use with their email programs to send email from anywhere in the world (provided they have an Internet connection). Messages up to 100MB in size can be sent or received at LuxSci. No matter if you are at work, at home, or traveling, you can always use our servers to reliably and consistently send email any time that you are connected to the Internet!
For your protection and to prevent SPAM, we do not provide "open relays". This just means that you must configure your email program to send your username and password when sending your email messages. This is easy to do and we have step-by-step instructions that are available to you for configuring most email programs. We also have a strict anti-spam policy.
If you are security-conscious, LuxSci also offers "Secure SMTP", or SMTP over a secure SSL or TLS connection. This ensures that your username, password, and message contents are encrypted when you connect to our email servers. No one will be eavesdropping on your outgoing email connections! Account administrators can optionally force all of their users to use only secure connections for SMTP.
Additionally, all of LuxSci's SMTP servers support "SMTP TLS" and will automatically talk to other email servers securely if at all possible. I.e. if we are sending to another server that supports STARTTLS or another server with that support is talking to us, you email message will be automatically encrypted in transit between these servers.
Alternate SMTP Ports
If your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or organization doesn't like you to use SMTP servers from other companies, LuxSci offers alternate ports that you can use to connect to our SMTP servers and thus get around your ISP's overly restrictive policies. LuxSci even provides normal and secure SMTP services over port 80 to allow you to send email through even the strictest of firewalls.
Anonymous SMTP: Hide Your IP
If you are concerned about the recipients of your email messages knowing information such as the Internet address of the computer(s) from which you are sending your email messages, you may be interested in LuxSci's Anonymous SMTP sending service. Read more about Anonymous SMTP.
