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
  • 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.

Kickstarter Time? - Email Templating and Customization Enhancements for Dada Mail

August 31st 2016

Howdy all - new update! I've gotten mass email messages working with the new Foundation for Emails based templates, so that's really cool. There was a TON of work to make this happen behind the scenes to get the whole workflow in-code somewhat sane. But that's a huge hurtle, and I don't foresee too many things in this project being THAT large. Other niceties: * the Send a Webpage screen now supports attachments! * the Send a Message screen now supports embedded images! * Both support embedding images that are in y ...Continue Reading

Bug in Bridge allowed confirmation emails to come through.

August 31st 2016

Howdy all, There's a bug in Bridge, where if you try to send a confirmation email to the List Email - in this case, dadadev@PROTECTED It'll actually come through, since that confirmation email is from the List Owner, who's always allowed to post. You may have remembered this email that came through a few days ago, > Hello! > > This message has been sent to you as the final step to confirm your > email list subscription for the following list: > > Dada Mail Developers > > To confirm t ...Continue Reading

Re: gmail unsubscribe button

August 19th 2016

I understand (and appreciate the need to stop the abuse) but that doesn’t apply to my requests. All of them are actual subscribers. I would love it if gmail would use the link instead of the reply to address, but I don’t think I’m going to bend gmail to my will. ;)At the moment I’m going with a reply using text expander which says:Thank you for your reply. If you wish to unsubscribe, please use the unsusbscription link at the bottom of every mailing (replying does not unsubscribe addresses). If you have any trouble with ...Continue Reading

Re: Email Templating and Customization Enhancements for Dada Mail

August 18th 2016

Update on this: I've successfully harnessed the Foundation for Emails workflow to work with Dada Mail. At the moment, I can send a confirmation message in an HTML message that looks and acts pretty well in most email clients, including being *responsive*, which is awesome (think mobile phone users). Making this work on all the other transactional emails just means writing out the email and making some simple changes in Dada Mail's source. The next big hurtle will be getting actual mass mailings to use the ...Continue Reading
