Qualcomm Eudora Products Releases New Unix and Mac Mail Servers that Lower Operating Costs for IT Departments

Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leader in digital wireless communications and advanced electronic messaging solutions for the Internet, today announced it has released the newest versions of Qualcomm's Eudora Internet Mail Server (EIMS) 3.0 for Macintosh and its free Qpopper Server 3.0 for Unix environments. EIMS 3.0 and Qpopper 3.0 are designed to reduce operating costs by allowing greater throughput and by providing added protection against security breaches while also expanding support of current industry standard protocols.

"Qualcomm's EIMS and Qpopper servers are recognized industry favorites due in large part to their superior performance records," said Jeffrey K. Belk, Qualcomm senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm Eudora Products. "EIMS 3.0 and Qpopper 3.0 provide system administrators for Mac and Unix environments with the stable infrastructure necessary to manage the explosive growth in electronic communications while minimizing operating costs."

EIMS 3.0 for Mac Environments

The new EIMS 3.0 server accommodates up to two times the throughput of the previous version, allowing users to realize greater functionality from existing hardware. With this increased efficiency, IT administrators will not have to rely on additional hardware purchases to manage their increased email traffic. In addition, improved SMTP AUTH support security, relay restriction controls and better filters help avoid significant costs related to unsolicited bulk email, commonly known as spam, and the prevention of email hijacking.

Qualcomm's new EIMS 3.0 version supports all the leading email protocols including POP3, SMTP and IMAP4. The IMAP4 protocol, a new feature of EIMS 3.0, provides email users with the flexibility of maintaining email messages on the server. This means users have the option to access messages from different computers and locations throughout the network. EIMS 3.0 is now available at at a special introductory price of $399 (U.S.), with no user limit.

Qpopper 3.0 for Unix and Linux

Qpopper 3.0 offers improved stability, security and support for current and emerging communications standards. Like all Eudora products, Qpopper was put through extensive testing to ensure prevention of buffer overruns, resulting in improved stability and security. Other improvements include: 1) an updated mailbox locking code to add even greater stability to the server; 2) reduction of support costs by notifying the client with standardized error reports that include suggested actions; 3) the ability to set most compile-time settings from the configure script, which saves setup time and costs; and 4) the ability for systems administrators to issue bulletins based on group membership. Qpopper 3.0 is available at no charge

"Qpopper is an extremely stable and reliable POP server that is easy to configure and maintain," said Brennon Church, system administrator of CTSnet Internet Services, a San Diego-based Internet service provider. "Qpopper has been our POP3 server of choice for the past four years and counting."
