I am comfortable using computer systems, but I am not familiar with PHPMyAdmin. Can you give me more details, or a screen shot.
The people on my lists tell me every so often they have a new e-mail address and want me to change theirs. Right now I am using GoogleGroups and they do not even let me add people anymore. They stopped it about a year ago. I have to invite people to join. It is a real headache.
Also you mentioned that you run a list for parents of gymnysts. How does one establish the "name" of the list? Can you pick any name you want and do you get to use your own domain name or does it have to end in dadamailproject.com?
SeymourI'm not sure if Justin is in town right now, so I'll answer. Yes, that is all possible and one of the reasons that I am using Dada for a gymnastics team list. Without the ability to add and remove addresses myself it would be impossible to manage the lists I run. One note, though - changes can't be made through the admin dashboard by the administrator, but it's easily done in MySQL if you are comfortable working in PHPMyAdmin. Add and removing addresses can be accomplished via the admin dashboard.
Mary AnnI am considering trying out using the DADA mail system for using it with several lists I run for a homeowners board.
I am wondering if this system works like the L-Soft listserv where the owner can add addresses, change them, and remove them at any time.
Could you give me some feedback.

This mailing list is to discuss the nerdy programming development of Dada Mail -
If you are just looking for support Dada Mail, consult the message boards at:

Some on topic... topics include:
At the moment, there aren't many people with CVS access for Dada Mail - if you would like CVS access, please first talk about the changes you propose and how it will affect the program. If the idea is sound and agreed upon, the change will be comitted. A good track record of this will allow you to have CVS access. Some reasons that patches will not be accepted is if the patch breaks compatibility with a previous version of the program, the patch is too centric to your own problem or the patch simply isn't very good.
Please, please please familiarize yourself with the documentation at:
Since no one wants to answer the same question twice.
Another sneaky reason for this mailing list is to test out the discussion list capabilities of Dada Mail, since Dada Mail is used for the mailing list itself.
NOTE - because of this, there may be times that this list will be somewhat broken. Although we're not planning on breaking the program by using it, we're giving you the heads up that this may well happen anyways.
