I'm always running the latest Pro version. I have two sites with a total of five lists with a combined subscription base of around 500, so not huge. I've only noticed it recently.

It worked before the update.

This is Pro Dada version 10.7.2 Stable 12/29/17

The problem is that Outlook (and Windows Mail) totally mess up standard HTML formatting that all other programs can handle properly. Those who follow sites like Office-Watch.com will know all about just how terrible Outlook's HTML-handling capabilities are.


You didn't say what Dada Mail version you were using before, but there have been changes to HTML over time. Are you using the built-in HTML templates, or do you have them turned off like Bruce does? If you are, it is likely possible to compare the old and new and see exactly what has changed.

I have the same problem send from Outlook 2016.  Before the update to the latest DadaMail it worked fine.  Now it’s double spaced.  So, since it worked before the update, it can’t be Outlook.  Has to be a setting in DaDa.  Where?

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,

Some on topic... topics include:

  • 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.
