v10.7.0 Released

From: "Justin J justin@PROTECTED [Dada Mail Developers]" <dadadev@PROTECTED>
Subject: v10.7.0 Released
Date: July 6th 2017


Hi Everyone - v10.7.0 has been released. Download and install:


Changelog (and below):


10.7.0 Features Support for embedding Google Analytics-style UTM parameters into your message links Dada Mail now makes it easy to add UTM parameters to the links in your email messages.

If you use a platform like Google Analytics, you can then see when visitors come to your site, from a link originating from your mass mailing messages.

This support works fine with Dada Mail's own clickthrough tracking, and you may use both at the same time.

See our blog post for details on this new feature:


Upgraded SMTP Libraries Dada Mail's outgoing SMTP library have been updated, which should provide more successful connections to a wider variety of SMTP servers and authentication flavors. Of note:

STARTTLS Support STARTTLS is now an option when connecting to an SMTP server.

More Verbose Debugging If something does go wrong, more information will be returned to help you get to the root of the problem.

Upgraded POP3 Libraries Dada Mail's incoming POP3 library has also been updated, which should provide more successful connections to a wider variety of POP3 servers and authentication flavors.

Of note:

Better SSL/STARTTLS Support POP3 is used in Dada Mail in both the Bounce Handler, and Bridge plugins. Both now support SSL connections, being able to specifically choose which port to connect to, and if you would like to explicitly verify the SSL Certificate or not.

Both SMTP and POP3 SSL/TLS options require the IO::Socket::SSL Perl CPAN module to be installed (as they both required in the past).

Installation can be done separately, or by installing the Bundle::DadaMail module, if this module is not already available in your server environment.

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.
