From: > > From: maryann@PROTECTED > I’ve been on the fence about switching to a mailing service because of GDPR. If significant changes are made to Dada to make compliance with GDPR easier (including being able to do a search for subscribers who had not interacted with a list through opens and/or clickthroughs specified in an advanced search), I would definitely be willing to support the development. That'll be quite beyond the pale of this most recent work. Certainly something I can re ...Continue Reading

From: Hi Justin, All no problem - to be clear, my points were made from the perspective not of underestimating but of prioritising. There are lots of people running around making a lot of money from GDPR over here at present. A large amount of the panic in the UK originates from the fact that the mass focus on Brexit completely over shadowed GDPR and the Information Commissioner (the UK regulator) had originally been criticised for being well behind the game for published information and advice. ...Continue Reading

From: Hi Justin from GDPR land! I have been doing a mass of stuff with GDPR and I would say that it does need taking seriously, but on the other hand I would encourage you to make any changes from the perspective that requirements need to be highlighted to the list owner/maker when setting up. The reason I say this is that I think you run the risk of busting a good product trying to cater for things that can only be implemented by the list owner/maker setting up Dada Mail. Example : The list own ...Continue Reading

From: Howdy everyone. I'm actively tackling the GDPR monster. It's a big issue, and I'm taking it very seriously. I know some of you have questions about GDPR and Dada Mail. Boy do I have some too. Right now, I'm working on the "record of consent" part of all this, and also just what constituted "consent". So good part: Dada Mail, since way back in the day, has kept records on things like requests to subscribe, confirming subscriptions, unsubscriptions - stuff like that. That ...Continue Reading

I just would like the option to hide the public lists. I mean, yeah - you could build in the option to not show a subscription form in the app. It's just not currently an option. ...Continue Reading

- This mailing list is a group discussion list (unmoderated)
Start a new thread, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
