Hello everyone, v10.5.1 released -

  • Download and install:


  • Changelog:


and below,


This is mostly a bug-fix release for issues found in the v10.5.1 release of Dada Mail.


Change in Default File Permissions from: 0666 to 0644

Dada Mail has been tweaked slightly to set permissions of files it creates to, 0644, rather than 0666. This is to enhance security of the files that Dada Mail creates and modifies.


Set Default File and Directory Permissions Support in Dada Mail Installer

To complement the change in default file permissions, the included installer for Dada Mail now supports customizing the default file and directory permissions. Check the option, Configure Security Options and look under, File/Directory Permissions.

Great care must be made to make sure the permissions you set will work with your server environment.

Add a Website URL in your List Information

There's support for adding a website URL as part of your List Information. If set, this URL will show up in the footer of the email messages sent by Dada Mail.


No default in "last_modified_timestamp" col in "dada_message_drafts"


Bridge: poor handling of poorly created multipart/related messages #657

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.
