PC World: Full-Featured Eudora Now FreeDec 10, 1999, 06:09 (6 Talkback[s])

"Starting Thursday, Qualcomm will let you download a beta edition of a full-featured version of its Eudora e-mail client free of charge. The only difference from the $50 retail version of Eudora Pro is a large ad in the lower left-hand corner of the application window.
Accepting that ad is your cost for the entire Eudora suite, including inline spell-checking, advanced filtering options, and 17 other new features. If you choose to hide the ad, your application reverts to the functional equivalent of the freeware Eudora Light."
"Eudora runs on PCs running Windows 95, 98, or NT--and OS 7 and above for Macintosh computers. Minimum requirements are a Net-ready computer with a POP or IMAP mail connection."
"The move is Qualcomm's attempt to keep up with the shifting sands of the e-mail market, where clients often come free with application suites. It's extremely hard for consumers and businesses to justify paying, analysts say."
