URLs in list messages

July 21st 2016

URLs in list messages Could someone explain to me how dada handles links placed in messages? So, I see a link to a website in the message I receive from a list, say: https://www.Google.com But if I right-click and copy the link it appears like so: http://www.mydomain.net/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi/r/listname/077417867518/joe.smith/email.com/ I click on that link in the mail message, and it redirects to www.Google.com, for example, as expected. So, I assume dada stores the actual url somewhere, but I don't really understand ...Continue Reading

I don't right this second, although I would first see if the problem does truly happen only on https-enabled sites. That seems a little suspect. Other than that, the usual song-and-dance: report relevant error logs, a simple way to recreate the problem, etc. ...Continue Reading

Re: Dada Mail Developers Digest

Thanks for the reply, Arthur. With HostGator you would do well to use Amazon SES for sending. It won’t solve the problem with saving schedules, but it will help immensely with your sending. I was managing a list for my daughter’s gymnastics team on shared hosting at HostGator and switched to SES - it was well worth it and for a small list it’s very inexpensive ($2-3/mo for our lists).Justin, any thoughts on the issue with saving schedules not working?

Re: Dada not saving scheduled time & date since SSL installed

July 13th 2016

Update on this - clicking Save Schedule does not save any settings regardless of whether the Activate box is checked. If I have checked Activate and set a time, when the page reloads after clicking Save Schedule the time is empty and the Activate box is unchecked. On the other hand, if I click Send Test, it saves all of the settings and activates the mailing if that box is checked. Definitely some kind of bug in the Save Schedule code that I never had a problem with before installing the security certificate. Warm ...Continue Reading

Dada not saving scheduled time & date since SSL installed

July 11th 2016

I am having a new error since installing a security certificate. When I save a scheduled mailing, the time and date for the schedule doesn’t save unless the mailing is active. I don’t activate the mailing until all the testing is complete, but I do need to save the time and date for the schedule before that point. This was never a problem until I installed the security certificate, so I am assuming it has something to do with that. Ideas? Warm regards, Mary Ann ...Continue Reading

Viewing the, "Not Yet Confirmed" sublist, and more export options

June 28th 2016

Howdy all, Along with the StopForumSpam service integration, I've had an itching to make the Membership >> View screen more useful. The first thing I've worked on, is making the list of addresses that have completed the first step of a subscription, but haven't confirmed their subscription (by clicking the confirmation link in the email you send) viewable. That's done! I'd also like to have an easy way to resend that confirmation from within the list control panel (or remove the address from the sublist ...Continue Reading

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.
