San Diego, California-based Qualcomm Inc may have lost a valuable customer for its Eudora Light E-mail system: while Cisco Systems Inc currently includes Eudora Light as part of its CiscoRemote Plus remote connectivity solution, it has committed itself to including’s BeyondMail Standard Edition SMTP Internet E-mail solution in the forthcoming release 2.0 of the software, and may abandon Eudora Light altogether. is Banyan Systems Inc’s Internet division. According to Al David, product manager for CiscoRemote, Cisco and Qualcomm are currently in discussions about whether or not Cisco should continue to license Eudora Light alongside BeyondMail. The signs are, however, that even if a licensing deal is struck, it will not have the broad scope of the original agreement: David says that one of the things under discussion is whether Eudora Light should only be included as an option for existing CiscoRemote users who want to stick with the Qualcomm package. Cisco was attracted to BeyondMail primarily because of its rules-based messaging capabilities, according to David. He added that the company is looking at providing other functionality within CiscoRemote, and that one of the technologies it is considering licensing is Lexington, Kentucky-based DataBeam Corp’s FarSight collaborative computing software which Cisco likes for its T.120-based application sharing capabilities. Other enhancements to be included in version 2.0 of CiscoRemote will include support for Windows 95, and ISDN support. It is due to be released later this month.
