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
- 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.

OK! Moving on, I've been tinkering with using this service: http://stopforumspam.com/ to try to put the kibosh on fake signups. My work can be seen here: https://github.com/justingit/dada-mail/tree/features-stop_forum_spam We'll see how it goes. If it shows promise, I'll release support for it in the next version of Dada Mail, ...Continue Reading

Hello everyone, v9.4.0 is out the door. This version includes rate limiting. You want rate limiting, and I'd suggest upgrading almost any install to this version. No kidding. * Download and Install: http://dadamailproject.com/support/documentation-9_4_0/install_dada_mail.pod.html Rate Limiting We've enabled a Rate Limiting in Dada Mail! This is a safeguard against perhaps nefarious attempts at attacking the Dada Mail when there are many requests done in a short space of time. Before v9.4.0, Dada Mail would happily ...Continue Reading

Hello everyone, v9.4.0 Beta 1 is out. Download and Install: http://dadamailproject.com/support/documentation-9_4_0-beta1/install_dada_mail.pod.html (Pro Dada versions are available) This version has the new Rate Limiting feature built in. Seems to work really well! Now that it's a part of the app, seems a little naked to run without it. Rate Limiting is currently enabled by default, and also has settings that can be customized in the installer. I'd love to get some more real-world feedback in seeing if the featu ...Continue Reading

Re: Rate Limiting in Dada Mail Ten requests in a minute should definitely be enough - as long as it isn't counting assets, only main page access.My only currently running Dada instance is 5.1.1 and it looks like that does load the assets through the cgi.Rather than rate limiting, maybe something like what MailChimp does could work. They have a hidden field on the form that a bot would be likely to try to fill in, but a real person would never see. If there is anything in the field, the submission is rejected. & ...Continue Reading

I'm getting a lot of reports of people having their Dada Mail installs slammed with requests on subscription forms, basically from bots trying to do… something with the form (probably badly informed). One option to stop this is putting a CAPTCHA on this form, which I'm slightly opposed to, since it adds yet another step between a person who's not subscribed to your list, and one that is. Rather, I've been experimenting with rate limiting, so only a number of requests are allowed in a certain amount of time. Luckily ...Continue Reading
