After looking at message source in emails from different devices and apps, I've concluded it's Windows 10 Mail that's messing with my head. It's showing me the in-composition message as if it's inserting breaks, not paragraph tags. Typical Microsoft, using their own styles and such in the generated html. Guess I'll just have to get used to remembering where I've hit enter vs ctrl-enter. Or find a better email app for Windows.

Of course. But again, these messages are composed in rich text (html) format and they look a lot different in my outbox than in my inbox, but only when they've gone through Dada Mail. I can send myself an email direct from one account to another, different types/providers and I only see this in Dada list returns. I believe some sort of reformatting must be happening. I just need to understand it and, hopefully, figure out how to prevent it.

I believe this is the ‘style’ for p tags…e.g., each paragraph has space (a bottom margin) following it, so adding a blank line between paragraphs in your email is the equivalent of 1st paragraph, space, empty paragraph, space, 2nd paragraph space, empty paragraph, space, etc…

From: webmaster@PROTECTED

For some reason, when I send an email from Windows 10 Mail to one of my Dada lists, it multiplies the vertical whitespace. So if I enter a hard return, I get a blank line in between the two paragraphs. This is now how it looks when I am composing the email, nor how it looks in the Sent folder. And I don’t see this in replies I get from individuals when they include my original message.


Is there some Dada Mail setting I am overlooking or is Windows 10 Mail doing this? Anyone else experiencing this?


Thanks in advance,

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.
