We prove the immediate appearance of an exponential lower bound, uniform in time and space, for continuous mild solutions to the full Boltzmann equation in a $C^2$ convex bounded domain with the physical Maxwellian diffusion boundary conditions, under the sole assumption of regularity of the solution. We investigate a wide range of collision kernels, with and without Grad's angular cutoff assumption. In particular, the lower bound is proven to be Maxwellian in the case of cutoff collision kernels. Moreover, these results are entirely constructive if the initial distribution contains no vacuum, with explicit constants depending only on the a priori bounds on the solution.
