Dada Mail 6.7.0 Released

Dada Mail is a Contemporary Mailing List Manager, enabling you to easily run a verified mailing list that your subscribers can trust, right on your own website. v6.70 is our latest, stable release.

v6.7.0 is a Pretty Big Release! D.I.Y. Install or Let Us Do It For You - some Pretty Big Features to check out:

Save as Draft

Watch our short screencast on Dada Mail's new "Save as Draft" feature!

In past versions of Dada Mail, it was always awkward to keep an unfinished copy of your message: You would either have to keep a browser window always open with this message, save your message in a different place (in a text file on your computer), or use another, hand-rolled solution.

Now, Dada Mail supports saving unfinished messages, called Drafts. Rejoice!

Dada Mail can now save a Draft message right in the "Send a Message" or "Send a Wepage" control panel screens. Messages are also auto-saved every minute, in case your browser window is inadvertantly closed by accident. Draft messages will also be saved whenever you send out a test mass mailing, and waiting for you, whenever you come back to send out the message to your subscribers.

An unlimited number of draft messages may also be saved, viewed and edited.If you want to start over, you also may cancel the message and delete the draft.

File Attachments

Watch our short screencast on Dada Mail's new "File Attachments" enhancements.

File Attachment uploading is now handled by the included KCFinder web file manager. This allows you to easily upload attachments before sending a message out, as well as attach files already uploaded.

Attachments can now also be removed from your messages easily.

jQuery Plugin

Watch our short screencast on Dada Mail's new jQuery plugin/

Dada Mail now ships with its own jQuery plugin, to easily create subscription forms, as well as handling the requests inside a modal window, rather than being redirected away from your main website to Dada Mail.

Dada Mail uses the jQuery plugin itself - you'll notice it in action on subscription forms handled by Dada Mail, in the app itself.

The jQuery plugin has 100% support for graceful degredation: if a user uses Dada Mail without having JavaScript enabled, the subscription process will work very similary to how it worked before the jQuery plugin enhancements were put in place.

Dada Mail!

Dada Mail helps you with managing an email mailing list, offering complete support for safe, closed-loop opt-in subscriptions, sending out mass mailings, keeping message archives and allowing you to share your messages in lots of neat ways.

You run Dada Mail on your own web hosting account, giving you complete control over your valuable mailing lists. Do It Yourself - Dada Mail is designed for small businesses in mind, to provide an economical and extremely flexible solution to reach out to your customers, fans, friends, business partners and clients. There's no monthly fee to use Dada Mail, based on sending amount or otherwise.

Interact with Dada Mail through your web browser, making Dada Mail available anywhere you have a connection to the Internet, your business computer, your smart phone, your iPad, or any other computer, while on the go.

Dada Mail is rich with features, but tries to Keep It Simple. Dada Mail is designed to favor flexibility, extensibility and ease-of-use over core speed or extremely flashy but hard-to-use features. We ship Dada Mail with sane default mailing list preferences, so you can start using Dada Mail, without causing a faux pas and keeping your subscribers happy.

Dada Mail is designed to be installed, setup and understood by regular people who have websites, but packs enough advanced features to entice more proficient users. If you've installed a bulletin board or web blog software, you can install Dada Mail.

Dada Mail can scale. Install Dada Mail on most any basic hosting account and start sending out messages right away. Mailing List growing? Switch to sending with a more powerful third-party system, like Amazon SES, where there's potentially no limit on the number of emails you may send - all without having to change mailing list mangement systems or your hosting.

Dada Mail is free software that you're able to use, modify, share and enhance under the terms of the GNU General Public License. Dada Mail is written in Perl because we love Perl. Open Source software is easier to keep current, bug free and working great and our development is open for anyone to check out or even help out.

Dada Mail is named after the Dada Art Movement, comprised of in part of an incredibly creative pocket of free thinkers that expressed themselves without boundaries during the horrific time of WWI. Dada defies actual definition (by design!) and we'd like to be surprised and delighted to learn how you use Dada Mail!
