Mailing List Information:

  • This mailing list is a public mailing list - anyone may join or leave, at any time.

  • This mailing list is a group discussion list (moderated)

  • Start a new thread, email: (dadadev@dadamailproject.com)

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:

http://dadamailproject.com/support/boards

To post to this list, send a message to:

dadadev@dadamailproject.com

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:

http://dadamailproject.com/support/documentation/

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.

I'd like to instead get what I'm finishing up out there, for people to work with, and perhaps give back some feedback. Already with Beatitude, people want to send on schedules that aren't so uniform - they want: "Every weekday", or, "Monday/Wednesday/Friday", or even just, "Every Monday" and that's not somethin...

Retro New Feature: Schedules!

Sent December 4th 2014

Hello Everyone, I've been hard at work with rewriting Mass Mailing Schedules in Dada Mail. The venerable Beatitude plugin is getting a bit long in the tooth, and is written in a way that makes it very, very hard to enhance in any really easy way. It's marked as, "deprecated" (I'd like to dump it, ASAP). Instead, I've added scheduling as an option to both the Send a Message, and Send a Webpage screens, so that you can turn any draft message into a message to be sent sometime in the future, rather than righ...

Digests enabled in Bridge

Hello Everyone, For those who would like to help test out the Digest feature in Dada Mail, it's now enabled in the Dada Mail running this very list!. To do so, you'll need to login to your profile, here: http://dadamailproject.com/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi?f=profile_login If you haven't done so, it's possible you have no idea what your Profile password is. There are options to reset that password, or register for a new profile. Giving that this list is 14+ years old, it's also possible that you have no profile (as ...

(re)Introducing Digests!

Sent November 21st 2014

Hello everyone, I've been commissioned to reimplement Digests in Dada Mail - the work can currently be found here: https://github.com/justingit/dada-mail/tree/features-digest_option It's a pretty big feature at the moment (42 changed files, with 2,739 additions and 951 deletions.). I never really thought the original implementation was really all that hot: it was very awkward to set up, as it required two separate lists that somehow were to be aligned to work right. With those two lists, the digest members couldn...

template tag for sender?

Sent November 12th 2014

I know Justin isn't around, but I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if there is a template tag for the original sender's address in Bridge. I would like to put a footer in the emails that has the original sender's email address since P.P. mode converts the address to the list owner's address. The only tag I have found is the subscriber's email address (<!-- tmpl_var subscriber.email -->) but it seems like there should be one for the sender as well.
