The installer would be needed to install and upgrade the app.

The installer would also help make sure the prereqs. to use Google reCAPTCHA are working correctly, and allow you to test the config of it all, so it's what I also suggest if you want to set it up.

How to configure it via the global config file also changes - and it has changed between what you're running and what's out now - again the installer helps smooth out those sort of details.

How the heck did you install Dada Mail without the installer?

Firstly - thank you! Since we corresponded through the list in November about the semaphore messages, my ssh cli-installed and Schedule::Cron Dada Mail installation has worked continuously and flawlessly.

Now, I would like to add reCAPTCHA to my subscription form, so that a publicly visible link to the form can be put on the astronomy club website. I want to be reasonably assured that the subscription request I see are genuine. In your online documentation about 'Google reCAPTCH v2 Support', you describe configuring Dada Mail for reCAPTCHA either by using the web-based installer at an upgrade or to make configuration changes. I am not clear either option is available to me, given the restricted shared host currently in use. Can the configuation be done manually? Which files should I look for/ in?

A related question concerns upgrades. I installed 11.4.6 and sooner or later should upgrade to a newer version. Assuming I cannot use the web-based installer, can it be done manually? Is it 'just' a case of overwriting files with new versions and adding those that are additional, having backed up user data?

Kind regards

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.
