Server Headers sent by Dada Mail not good enough to stop caching of dynamic screens #697


Webpage caching is generally a good thing. Caching dynamic screens in a webapp is not, if you don't know what screens have data that's specific to say, a login cookie. Dada Mail is set up to try to sidestep any caching that's configuring by sending a series of server headers that say, "hey, don't cache this, don't look at a cached version", but the previous server headers just weren't enough. So, we've modified them to be a bit more robust. They'll look a bit like this:

    Cache-Control: "max-age=0, no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate"
    Pragma: "no-cache"
    Expires: "Wed, 11 Jan 1984 05:00:00 GMT"

There's currently no way to adjust these headers within the app, but if you would like to make your own adjustments, the easiest way is to put them in the .htaccess file that lives within the, dada directory. Directives to set these headers already exist within this file, they just need to be uncommented be live.

Subscriber's Email Address Always Filled in with List Owner's Email Address in Mass Mailing Email Messages #683


In other words, any time this email template tag was used:

    <!-- tmpl_var subscriber.email --> 

It would be replaced with the List Owner's email address, and not your specific Subscriber's. This was because internally, the template variable for, subscriber.email was set to the List Owner's email address. Fixed!

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.
