Qualcomm heeft een nieuwe betaversie op zijn e-mailprogramma Eudora uitgebracht. De bèta heeft versienummer 184.108.40.206 meegekregen en heeft vele veranderingen ondergaan, waaronder verbeterde SSL-comptabiliteit, betere IMAP-functionaliteit en de toevoeging van Emoticons en ScamWatch. Eudora is op drie manieren te gebruiken. Ten eerste kan er gratis met beperkt mogelijkheden worden gewerkt. Dan is er de mogelijkheid om nog steeds voor niets, maar met meer functionaliteit aan de gang. In dat geval worden er wel advertenties afgebeeld. Tenslotte kan men voor $50 het volledige potentioneel gebruiken en dat ook nog zonder reclame. Hieronder staan alle veranderingen ten opzichte van versie 6.1.2:
