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:
To post to this list, send a message to:
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
- 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.

Its complaining that you don’t have Carp installed no? Kinda looks like it's (also) complaining about the URI::Escape module having some deprecated code. URI::Escape is a module that is bundled with Dada Mail, so it's likely out of date. You can install your own copy of this module via CPAN and that version should be used instead. If the bundled version i ...Continue Reading

Bruce Sounds like when you upgraded your Perl it broke your perl modules. Its complaining that you don’t have Carp installed no? I like to use Plenv which is a virtual env for Perl. https://github.com/tokuhirom/plenv#homebrew-on-mac-os-x —Eric S.

Re: PERL Problem Here is a follow-up. In searching for a possible solution, I found a message I had posted here back in February about the same problem. At that time, I was able to back off the MacPorts upgrade and things worked. This time, I changed mail.cgi to point to perl5.16 (the default is perl5.22) and everything started working again. I did find a number of references in my search to this error going from a warning in Perl to an actual error. Here is the full error from the log (I left off part in the previou ...Continue Reading

PERL Problem Used MacPorts to do an upgrade to installed programs and it apparently broke Dada Mail. Nothing works and the error log is filled with: Use of uninitialized value $error in join or string at /opt/local/lib/perl5/5.22/Carp.pm line 489, <CONFIG> line 1. at /Library/WebServer/Documents/vtnews/DADA/App.pm line 12012.Is there a patch or fix for this?

In general, I would have a hard time understanding problems without other information (like error logs). If nothing comes up, and it hasn't bee a problem I've seen before, and I cannot recreate it, I usually don't know what's happening. My first idea though is perhaps the IP Address ...Continue Reading

That is probably it. The list is large and over 10 years old, so there is lots of data. I'll look at deleting some of the old data. Is there any variable I can change to avoid it timing out if that is the problem? Any thoughts on what is happening when I try to view the Tracker page in Chrome or Safari and it redirects me in a never-ending loop?

Any idea why my main Tracker screen always looks like this:In case attachments aren’t allowed, you can view a screenshot here: https://www.evernote.com/l/AG2p0_V5SiNPDYasachASrU2y7Bvhs0VBecWhen I click through all the stats are there for each mailing. Clearing the data cache doesn’t help, but reloading the page sometimes does. And if the stats are there, clearing the cache sometimes makes them go away.

Mass Mailing Count Malfunction Every so often one of our scheduled mass mailings gets hung and needs to be restarted. The error that shows up isWarning: $mass_mailing_count: 4286 is not the same as $new_count: 4298Typically the count is off by 1 with today's large disparity a bit unusual. Pausing then restarting the mailing gets things back on track, but it the problem crops up early in the send out it may not be discovered for a couple of hours, which delays sending of a time-sensitive message.Listed below are ...Continue Reading
