Features 6.3.0

Email Tracking for Opens/Clickthroughs

Dada Mail can now be set to optionally track email addresses, when tracking Clickthroughs and Message Opens. These address can currently be exported per mass mailing. This feature is somewhat experimental, as features that can stem from this new ability can be vastly expanded from what Dada Mail currently has.

This feature also requires changes to Dada Mail's SQL schema, which should happen automatically, during the first run of Dada Mail, after an upgrade. One can perform these changes manually, by issuing the following SQL:

        ALTER TABLE dada_clickthrough_url_log ADD email VARCHAR(80) AFTER url;
        ALTER TABLE dada_mass_mailing_event_log ADD email VARCHAR(80) AFTER details;

The option to track email addresses is located in the Tracker's list control panel screen, under, Preferences - Track with Email Addresses.

Password Protect Directories Plugin: Works with already-exisiting .htaccess

In past versions, the Password Protect Directories Plugin would write (and if there was an already existing .htaccess file, Write Over) its own .htaccess file. This does not play nicely with anything else that may need to use an .htaccess file.

Now, this plugin will first look and see if an .htaccess file exists, and if so, if specific directives for the plugin itself exist. If so, the plugin will only update the file and change the directives it needs in order for the plugin to work.

It's advised, that if you upgrade to first disable the plugin's cronjob, remove the directives in the .htaccess file specific for the plugin (or the entire .htaccess file, if nothing else requires this file, upgrade, and then re-set the cronjob for this plugin.

All subscribers of this list may post to the list itself.

Some on topic... topics include:

  • Positive Crits on the program (I like, "x", but, "y" needs some work - here's an idea on how to make this better...)
  • Bug/Error reports
  • Bug fixes
  • Request For Comments on any changes to the program
  • Help customizing Dada Mail for your own internal needs
  • Patches
  • Language Translations
  • Support Documentation/Doc editing, FAQ's, etc.
  • Discussion of any changes that you would like to be committed to the next version of Dada Mail -

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.
