List of all CPAN modules used by Dada Mail
- Other Required Modules to Install
- Other Optional Modules To Install
This is a a listing of all the CPAN perl modules that are shipped in Dada Mail's dada/DADA/perllib directory. When we create a distribution, we fetch the CPAN module list below and insert it into the Dada Mail distribution.
Dada Mail currently needs the standard Perl distribution's module listing, plus what's below in the CONTENTS section. Some of these modules below also come with a standard Perl distribution - but may be outdated for Dada Mail's taste or have bugs, or we have workarounds to certain misc. issues.
If you installed the following modules in your server's perl directory, you may remove the dada/DADA/perllib directory from the installed distribution.

Other Optional Modules To Install
Required Modules, not fetched via CPAN
The modules in this section NEED to be installed, but aren't installed via CPAN:
Dada Mail uses, version 0.61 of this module. There's a newer one on CPAN, but it's prereqs are long and some of the modules require compilation, and I haven't figured out what's so great about the new version, so we're sticking with the old version for now.
The weird thing is that this old version (0.61) isn't available on CPAN anymore. Why? I don't know, but it becomes an annoyance.
The modules below do not need to be installed for Dada Mail to work, but can enhance the functionality of Dada Mail.
HTML::FormatText::WithLinks is used to convert HTML to Plain Text.
If you do not have this module installed, Dada Mail can use its own HTML to Plain Text formatter, but it's not very good.
We suggest HTML::FormatText::WithLinks, it just has to be installed manually.
Used to locate the domain of the site Dada Mail is installed - mostly for creating the Message-ID header for email messages.
If DBI is installed, as well as the proper DBD::xsql driver is installed - as well as a SQL server to compliment it, Dada Mail can use that backend to store its subscription list and archives. In some cases, this adds extra functionality to Dada Mail.
Used to take out nasty bits that may be present in archived email messages when viewed in Dada Mail's public archive.
A very good idea to have if you're running a discussion list.
This module is actually required, but sometimes is not present in the standard distribution. It's better to use the XS version of this module, but Dada Mail has a copy of the Pure-Perl version in dada/DADA/perllib, but you must change the name of the dada/DADA/perllib/MIME/Base64.pm-remove_to_install and dada/DADA/perllib/MIME/QuotedPrint.pm-remove_to_install, removing, "-remove_to_install"
Used for its mx lookup capabilities.
Used for scheduled mailings.
Used for pinging the RSS/Atom archive feeds. A part of SOAP::Lite I believe.
Used to send web pages.
Use for SMTP Connections over SSL. Also requires IO::Socket::SSL
Used for SMTP connections over SSL.
This is used for the reCAPTCHA Mailhide functionality. I was hoping I could distribute Dada Mail with this module, but I can't, since one of its dependencies is an XS module. It's dependencies are:
There is a Crypt::Rijndael_PP, which is a Pure Perl version of the above, but unless I hack the above module, it won't use it be default. I have added a wishlist to have this happen (and volunteered)
If I don't get an answer, I may infact make some sort of stopgap solution, but I hope I get an answer.
Captcha::reCAPTCHA should still be included, as it does not require Crypt::Rijndael.
