Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leader in digital wireless communications and advanced electronic messaging solutions for the Internet, today announced the availability of Eudora2go, a feature-rich, mobile Eudora® email client for BREW handsets, combined with Eudora2go.net, a hosted email service with anti-virus and anti-spam protection and secure communications through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS). Eudora2go includes “PreMail™,” a robust push email capability that allows a Eudora2go user to preview the content of a new email message when it arrives, and thus save users the time and airtime costs of downloading the entire message.
“The world renowned Eudora email brand is expanding into the most logical market for a Qualcomm product: the mobile phone,” said Bill Ganon, vice president for Qualcomm’s Eudora products group. “Our experience based on the Eudora email product has helped us create Eudora2go and the ‘PreMail’ feature for mobile users. The end result of the collaboration between the Eudora, Intellisync and Rockliffe teams is the integration of a secure mobile email client and hosted email service, which delivers a true push-based email solution for both individual users and small-to-medium enterprises.”
Eudora2go was developed by Intellisync and is based on the company’s industry-leading BREW-compatible email products. It offers a full-featured secure POP3 and IMAP email client featuring the familiar functionality and graphic elements that are based on the highly popular Eudora desktop email application. In addition, Intellisync has developed the new “PreMail” feature to create more user-friendly email notification and give users a preview of email without a full download.
“The seamless integration of the Eudora2go email client and the Eudora2go.net server ensures practical access to and use of email without a learning curve,” said Basil Abifaker, director of Tourmaline Product Unit, Intellisync. “Qualcomm’s BREW solution continues to greatly enhance the value of mobile-worker email services by helping us create products that meet the increasing demand for remote email communication.”
Rockliffe, developers of the MailSite mail server software, has developed the server-side functionality that powers the Eudora2go.net service. By offering users the ability to set sophisticated server-side rules, plus the “PreMail” push email notification, an elegant and efficient integration has been created between the Eudora2go client and the hosted Eudora2go.net service. Additionally, Rockliffe’s technology further enhances the Eudora2go.net service with full anti-spam and anti-virus protection for individuals or enterprises seeking to have their own Eudora2go.net account.
“The rules-based wireless push technology that we have added to Eudora2go.net mail server will ensure that end users can manage their wireless email in a way that meets their particular requirements,” said John Davies, president and CEO of Rockliffe. “This adds tremendous value to the Eudora2go client and the Eudora2go.net service by helping end users to better manage their email workload.”
