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:

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:

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.

Announce: v9.0.0 Beta 2 Released

Sent November 24th 2015

Hello everyone, v9 Beta TWO! is out the door. This is a polished up version of beta 1, which was in pretty good shape as it is. These releases are (and will) reflect small changes I'm making to the app, as I get ready for the main release. Since the backend hasn't changed much, as this release focuses on the front end, it's actually quite stable. If you're running v8, this will be a very easy upgrade to v9. Download and Install,

Good by support boards/forums, hello Zendesk

Hi Everyone, So, with the coming of v9 of Dada Mail, I'll be closing the support boards/forums found at: and moving to Zendesk. I'm overwhelmingly the one who answers posts, so I might as well do it on my terms ;) (this discussion list will remain). Support via Zendesk will be prioritized to Pro Dada Subscribers, and instructions on how to open up a ticket are in the Pro Dada area (once logged in), as well as the contact page, ...

Screenshots of v9

Sent November 17th 2015

I've started to put together a preview of v9 of Dada Mail - To give you a taste of what v9 is all about. Hope it looks good! I urge you to give a go, yourself. Since little has changed in the backend, if you're running v8 now, upgrading (or downgrading) to v9 should be simple. Give it a taste on your mobile device as well, and let me know how well that's working for you too, ...

Re: list control panel navigation change in v9 - top bar?

Sent November 2nd 2015

Here's a somewhat rudimentary example of how the interface responds to working in a mobile environment as well as different screen sizes: The idea is to make it work well on Desktop, Tablet and Mobile. I'm not sure if sending a fancy and highly formatted message is going to be really realistic to do on mobile, but you certainly can send something off on the Desktop, and then check the status of your mass mailing on your phone. The Tracker plugin actually is working really...
