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.

Re: New issue - subject line can't be edited

July 22nd 2016

Mary, I'm not able to recreate your problems w/schedules not saving using the, "Save Schedule" button. Everything saves just fine. I'm wondering if you could try to list the steps used to recreate your problem, and do so in the simplest ways. That's pretty invaluable to me, when trying to work through a bug. Also, you may want to start first with just upgrading to the latest version. I can tell you're not up to date, as this error (or type of error) > [Fri Jul 22 12:20:01 2016] mail.cgi: (in cleanu ...Continue Reading

New issue - subject line can't be edited

July 22nd 2016

Now there is another problem with the scheduled mailings. When I am testing, I use PROOF (date of mailing) in the subject line, then I remove it when I activate the mailing. Dada is absolutely refusing to save the revised subject line. I delete PROOF from the subject line and either send a test or save the schedule. Both result in PROOF appended to the subject line both in the test message and the reloaded page. I’ve tried removing it manually and sending a test and saving a schedule. I’ve tried choosing “Use the W ...Continue Reading

I might try moving the drafts to the same domain that Dada is installed on (both the draft and Dada are on the same server in my case, but different domains) and see if that makes a difference. Are you seeing that the schedule doesn’t save, or that the schedule saves but the mailing doesn’t go out? In my case the schedule will save if I hit Send Test instead of Save Schedule, so I’m doin ...Continue Reading

Okay, I thought it was the SSL because the non-SSL domain didn’t have that issue, but I tested it on a 3rd install that is non-SSL but the same host as the SSL and had the same problem, so it must be a server setting instead. Error log shows: [Thu Jul 21 11:52:32 2016] mail.cgi: doesn't have a draft! at /DADA/App/MassSend.pm line 1681. There is a draft though - I’m using “Send a webpage” and “Save as schedule”.

URLs in list messages

July 21st 2016

URLs in list messages Could someone explain to me how dada handles links placed in messages? So, I see a link to a website in the message I receive from a list, say: https://www.Google.com But if I right-click and copy the link it appears like so: http://www.mydomain.net/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi/r/listname/077417867518/joe.smith/email.com/ I click on that link in the mail message, and it redirects to www.Google.com, for example, as expected. So, I assume dada stores the actual url somewhere, but I don't really understand ...Continue Reading
