Date: March 19th 2020

Howdy everyone, I hope everyone is managing all that is happening in the World as best as they can. Let me know if there's something I can do to help!

v11.10.0 of Dada Mail has been released. The main features are Google reCAPTCHA v3 support, and a few new points of data are captured/reported for the Tracker to show you (full changelog below).

Download and Install:

This was actually a much larger project than I anticipated:

Including create a new CPAN module for the reCAPTCHA v3 support:

Full Changelog:



Google reCAPTCHA v3 Support

Google reCAPTCHA v3 is now fully supported in Dada Mail. reCAPTCHA v2 was supported in the past, and will still be supported going forward.

reCAPTCHA v2 and v3 can be configured within the included Dada Mail Installer, and switching between either can also be done via the Installer.

Additional reCAPTCHA support throughout the app

Dada Mail supported reCAPTCHA in the following areas of the app:

  • Initial subscription form

  • Resend Subscription confirmation form

  • After a successful subscription confirmation

  • Reset mailing list password

  • Forward to a friend form

  • Profile registration

reCAPTCHA support has now been extended to the following:

  • Logging into a mailing list

  • Creating a new mailing list

  • Deleting a mailing list

Furthermore, several bugs related to reCAPTCHA have been addresses (see below).

reCAPTCHA setting on initial subscription form is now a per-mailing-list setting rather than global

If you would like some mailing lists to have reCAPTCHA on their subscription forms, and others to not: you can. Find the new setting in the list control panel under,

Mailing List: Options

The option is labeled,

Enable Google reCAPTCHA on the initial subscription form

More Analytics Gathered for Mass Mailings

Along with such things as messages opens, clickthroughs, bounces, etc, Dada Mail now tracks and reports the following to help you better understand the performance of your mass mailing:

  • Start Time

  • Finish Time

  • Sending method (sendmail, SMTP, Amazon SES)

And with that information, total sending time and sending speed will also be calculated and reported.


Confirmation Message when deleting a profile field is not working #908

List Templates fetched by URL that throws 404 still attempted to be used #907

reCAPTCHA v2 breaks if> 2 forms on the same page are using reCAPTCHA #902

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.
