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.

Re: PSGI/Plack Support in Dada Mail

> I can provide a sample config for the documentation if you want. Sure, I'd love to see it. I'm working on setting up a doc on deployment, as I work on PSGI support - I guess this will be testable in v8 alpha 3, as alpha 2 just doesn't have the support. Here's what I've got so far: :: Installing: use the command line tool - here's a sample incantation to install Dada Mail: sudo ./install.cgi --program_url \ --dada_root_pass secret \ --support_files_dir_path /Library/WebServer/Documents \...

Re: PSGI/Plack Support in Dada Mail This email reminded me that I forgot to reply that I have an answer for why FastCGI wasn't working. It was an Nginx configuration issue.  I haven't done all of the testing yet, but the site does come up properly. I can provide a sample config for the documentation if you want.

PSGI/Plack Support in Dada Mail

Sent February 24th 2015

Hello Everyone, Good news! I have been playing with getting Dada Mail running under PSGI/Plack. Background: (think Rack for Ruby, or WSGI for Python). It's still in its infancy, but I was able to get Dada Mail running under PSGI/nginx without too much both, which leads me excited, so it's now an install option to work with. That's going to be a pretty great option to run Dada Mail when performance matters and is another avenue if you want to run Dada Mail under FastCGI, in a strange weird wa...

> From: Moshe Katz > It appears that CGI::Fast has some issues, though I can't seem to find out why. See for details. Do you know anything about this, or know anyone who might be able to shed some light? No, I don't have much light to shed. As it stands, I've only tested Dada Mail on Apache using mod_fcgi/mod_fastcgi (whichever it is). Something like a reverse proxy setup on nginx isn't something I've played with, yet...

Justin, I'm sorry for taking so long to report back on my tests on this. See below for why... The idea looks great so far. However, I haven't managed to get FastCGI to work fully.
