No Eudora Pro 4.0 for Macintosh Overseas

No Eudora Pro 4.0 for Macintosh Overseas -- Qualcomm has confirmed that Eudora Pro 4.0 for Macintosh may never be made available outside of North America. The problem is that in those markets, Qualcomm is signing up local "re-publishers" who will be responsible for localization, sales, marketing, and distribution. To date, none have been willing to expend effort and resources on the Macintosh version, citing insufficient demand to justify the cost despite the fact that international sales account for 50 percent of Apple's sales. Exacerbating the problem is the fact that Qualcomm's PGP license requires that it be bundled with every copy of the domestic Eudora Pro; since PGP contains strong encryption, it cannot be exported internationally. Reportedly, once all the re-publishers sign up, Qualcomm will post contact information for them so Mac users can petition those companies for support. Eudora Pro 3.1 (see our review of Eudora Pro 3.0 in TidBITS-357) remains available internationally. [ACE]
