Email deal vows to deliver

Qualcomm, developer of Eudora Pro, and Software.com agree to work together to market products that will help make the transition from proprietary to Internet-based mail systems.

Qualcomm, developer of email software package Eudora Pro, and Software.com have agreed to work together to market products that will help make the transition from proprietary to Internet-based mail systems.

The partnership will deliver client-server solutions for email via the Internet and intranets, instead of the traditional proprietary mail systems. Qualcomm's Eudora software, licensed, distributed, and purchased by companies such as AT&T, Microsoft, Apple, and Netscape, has over 10 million users worldwide.

Under the agreement, Qualcomm will license Software.com's Post.Office server technology for use in Eudora products. The first set of client-server software will run on Windows NT and Unix platforms and will ship in the fourth quarter. Specific feature and pricing have not yet been released.

Post.Office has already been licensed by companies including AT&T WorldNet, Netscape, NetManage and Coordinate.com.
