"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."

"EIMS 3.0 for Mac Environments... 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. "

"Qpopper 3.0 for Unix and Linux... 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 at www.eudora.com/qpopper. "
