From: bob@PROTECTED Thanks so much for the reply. After posting this I did more research and saw the DMARC requirements. What was throwing me was my email client, Thunderbird. It replaces the tag output (from address) with the word "Me" or in some cases, "Bob" and does not show the full from address. I didn't realize this until I opened the same email in web based GMail and saw "bob@PROTECTED". So, it is working.

Perhaps something to talk to the Thunderbird developers, about?

My only concern will be others experiencing the same thing with their email clients as I did. Placing the tag in the email body likely will not work since you've already shown they get stripped or at least not replaced.

By default, Discussion List messages start off with stating which address the message has been sent from in the body itself. Template tags do get stripped from the actual content of the message in discussion messages by default, but this will not affect content that originate from the discussion message's layout template.

Changing up the From: header is just what needs to be done these days. Thems the breaks. The original sender address is still referenced in the, "comment" section of the From: header, as has been pointed out. I believe this is how most email discussion list systems work.

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.
