QUALCOMM Incorporated, a provider of digital wireless communications and advanced electronic messaging solutions for the Internet, has announced the commercial release of Eudora 7 software, a new version of the email program for Windows that includes an indexed search which provides search result speeds of up to 20 times faster than previous versions. Also new, Eudora 7 introduces BossWatch, a feature that alerts users about the presence of designated addresses in recipient lists. IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) users can experience increased performance as well as increased offline capabilities. For enterprise customers requiring greater email security, Eudora 7 adds the S/MIME (Secure Multi-purpose Internet Mail Extensions) plug-in capability.
Eudora 7's new BossWatch feature provides an extra level of awareness to the addresses in a recipient list. This can be particularly helpful when responding with "Reply All" to a recipient list that, for example includes colleagues and clients. BossWatch will alert the user to the presence of email addresses that are based on personal communication preferences. These addresses can be designated by name or domain. The "Send" button text and underlined name in the recipient field will alert the user of the specified address in the reply list. The IMAP mail protocol provides remote access to email, allowing review of headers as well as the ability to file and organize mail remotely.
Eudora 7 offers S/MIME plug-in functionality. The S/MIME personal email certificate allows users to secure email communications by digitally signing and encrypting emails. Eudora 7 can be downloaded from the Web site. Eudora 7 in Paid mode is available for $49.95 for new purchasers; $39.95 for previously paid registered users within 24 months from registration and no charge to users who purchased and registered the Paid mode of Eudora within 12 months. Paid mode features search, SpamWatch and BossWatch, in addition to the other features in Eudora 7.
