Glenn Anderson recently noted that he has licensed from Qualcomm Eudora Internet Mail Server (EIMS), the Mac-based POP/SMTP server. Anderson is the original author and programmer of EIMS.
With EIMS, you can use a 68030-or better equipped Macintosh running System 7.1 or later to serve e-mail to your network. The software works enables your network of users to send and receive Internet e-mail. EIMS offers filtering features and a variety of other amenities, as well.
Changes in EIMS Server 3.1 include:
Lots of new Apple Events and improved Apple Event performance.
Lots of performance improvements.
NTLM authentication (secure authentication with Outlook/Outlook Express).
CRAM-MD5 authentication for POP3.
Delivery Status Notification information in message bounces.
Statistics for Incoming and Outgoing queue delays, and total messages sent and received.
Lots of bug fixes.
Changes in EIMS Admin 3.1 include:
Navigation Services support for import and export.
Exporting passwords is now optional.
Better Appearance Manager support.
The latest build of EIMS, 3.1b3, is available for download from the
Eudora Internet Mail Server Web site
and expires at the end of the month. An alpha version of a Mac OS X-native admin utility is also available for download.
Anderson said he’ll only be officially supporting EIMS 3.1 and later. Anderson is offering a US$150 or $60 upgrade to users of EIMS 2.x and 3.0.x versions, respectively. A new license costs $400.
Unfortunately, licensing restrictions prevent Anderson from selling EIMS in France, but he hopes to have a version available in French sometime in the first half of 2002.
