QUALCOMM releases Eudora 6.0.

QUALCOMM Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leader in digital wireless communications and advanced electronic messaging solutions for the Internet, has announced the commercial release of Eudora 6.0 software, a powerful and feature-rich new version of the popular e-mail program for Windows and Macintosh users. Eudora 6.0 e-mail software features automatic spam protection, an e-mail thread condenser, automated type formatting tools, and mailbox organizational shortcuts. Eudora 6.0 e-mail software can be downloaded at

"Eudora has a long-standing reputation for providing benefits to individual, small office and enterprise e-mail users, and Eudora 6.0 raises the bar even higher," said William Ganon, vice president of QUALCOMM Eudora Products. "Spam e-mail is the single biggest problem we hear about from users, followed closely by the challenge of managing the increasing volume of e-mail. This latest version includes many new features, but there are two in particular that address these issues directly: SpamWatch and Content Concentrator."

Eudora 6.0 e-mail software's new SpamWatch feature, available in Paid mode only, makes filtering out junk mail simple, easy and automatic. SpamWatch is a whole suite of ready-to-use tools designed to stamp out unwanted junk mail. Right out of the box, most junk mail will be quarantined by SpamWatch.

Eudora 6.0 even helps users sort through the junk e-mail box to find the "wanted mail," if there is any. Eudora's junk mail box provides a numeric ranking system--"junk score." A higher number indicates e-mail with a greater number of criteria defining that mail as spam.

It is easy to train SpamWatch based on individual requirements. With unwanted mail selected, a simple click on the "Junk" command in the message menu trains Eudora that the selected e-mail is junk. SpamWatch then adds this information to the spam criteria. Conversely, wanted e-mail that ends up in the junk box can be deemed "Not Junk" through the same menu and these actions help Eudora learn what the user thinks is and is not junk e-mail. Users can also add "Junk" and "Not Junk" icons to the toolbar to make the process of teaching Eudora even easier.

Anyone who gets too much spam will benefit from upgrading to Eudora 6.0 with SpamWatch. Initiating SpamWatch is as simple as saying "yes" to the invitation to use Eudora's junk mailbox during installation of the Paid mode version. Eudora features an open API architecture in both Paid mode and Sponsored mode, available to third party developers, so other anti-spam tools and plug-ins can be integrated simply and smoothly.

It can be challenging to unravel a long e-mail thread, or to find what the sender actually said in the midst of all the quoting, signatures, forwards and other information included in long e-mail threads. The Content Concentrator feature will help by providing a streamlined view of an e-mail, making it easy to get to the heart of an e-mail conversation, with nearly the whole thread visible at a glance. Users can choose from three levels of concentration, depending on their needs.

Eudora 6.0 in Paid mode is available for $49.95 for new purchasers; $39.95 for previously paid registered users (Version 4.3 and higher); and no charge to users who purchased and registered the Paid mode of Eudora versions in the last 12 months. It features SpamWatch, in addition to all of the new features in 6.0. Technical support is available only to Paid mode users. The program is free when used in Sponsored mode, which contains all the features of Paid mode, except for SpamWatch. It also displays advertising in the user interface.
