Changelog (and below):


There's been a few more weeks than usual between releases, so this version has a lot more bug fixes in it than usual. It's a version I would suggest anyone that's running Dada Mail to upgrade to:

:: 10.7.2

This is mostly a bug-fix release for issues found in the v10.7.1 release of Dada Mail.

:: Features

:: Bounce Handler: Amazon SES Abuse Reports are now always sent to the List Owner by default

When using Amazon SES for mail sending, the Bounce Handler should almost always be installed as well, as taking care of bounce and abuse reports is critical to working with the Amazon SES environment. The Bounce Handler takes care of both bounces messages, and any abuse reports sent to it. One issue we've uncovered is that abuse reports can be sent from messages other than mass mailings - say, a nefarious person fills out a subscription form, then sends an abuse report after the confirmation email is sent to them. In previous versions of Dada Mail, there would be no way within Dada Mail to know that that abuse report was made. Dada Mail would not send out an email to the list owner to easily unsubscribe the address, since that address wasn't subscribed!

Starting with this version, that abuse report would be forwarded to the list owner, so that they then can take action. All abuse reports sent by Amazon SES will be sent to the List Owner by default, and this option can be enabled/disabled from within the Bounce Handler plugin options, independently of the option to forward bounced messages to the List Owner. The former hopefully happens rarely, the latter may happen on every mass mailing - easily overwhelming the List Owner.

Look for the options,

    [ ] Forward bounces to the List Owner after success
    [x] Forward abuse reports to the List Owner (Amazon SES only)

in the Bounce Handler plugin. It's suggested that anyone using Amazon SES for mail sending upgrade to this version, so that ALL abuse reports originated from email sent from Dada Mail get sent to the appropriate List Owner!

:: Changes

:: User-facing Profile Features

Dada Mail has the ability to enable/disable many of the user-facing Profile features, from disabling them entirely, to just turning on/off most every feature separately. We've changed a bit some of the defaults. The following features are now disabled by default:

• Registering for a new profile

• Deleting a profile

and the following feature has been completely removed:

• Logging into a Profile

Perhaps, "completely removed" is a little rough. What's really happening, is that we're simplifying the options. There's already an option to enable user-facing Profiles and all the features allowed with them. If that's enabled, so is a user being able to log into their profile, or what's the point? Two options are saying basically the same thing, so we're getting rid of the explicit, "log into a profile" option.

See issues #712 and #710 for more information.

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.
