This mailing list is to discuss the nerdy programming development of Dada Mail -

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
- 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.

Hello everyone, Just to keep everyone abreast on the new features in the upcoming release, here's what the changelog is looking like. I'm moving this to, "beta" status, and testing this internally. A release should be fairly soon: 11.11.0 ======= Focus ----- This is a major feature release of the app. Features -------- Scheduled Mailings Scheduled mailings allow you to write a draft message, then have it ready to be sent in the future. Recurring mass mai ...Continue Reading

Thanks, Justin. Somehow I missed that in the changelog and if you announced it here. Looks like I need to update.

I know you’ve said it wouldn’t be a good fit in the past, but throwing it out there again just in case… Any chance of being able to send a test to multiple test recipients all at once from the scheduled mailing interface (not using the test sublist)? I send mailings that require various groups of people to approve different mailings, so the test recipients sublist doesn’t really work for me as it’s constantly changing. I have to do test mailings one at a time to each recipient using the Send t ...Continue Reading

OK, I won't say I'm done adding stuff (anymore), but I'm getting close Along with the other scheduled mailings features, add: * Test Mode! Send a scheduled mass mailing, but only to test recipients. Should help to suss out if these are working. I feel not many people use this feature, as they feel anxious about it. -- Justin J: Lead Dadaist.url: http://dadamailproject.com email: justin@PROTECTED twitter: @dadamail skype: leaddadaist Dada Mail Announcements:http://dadamailproj ...Continue Reading

Adding to this some more, concerning scheduled mailings: * There will be an option to send an email notification out to the list owner for both success and failures of sending a scheduled mailing out. (Sometimes things happen). OK, I think I'm done with working on things for this new release, I'll be putting this through its paces for a little while before releasing, ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Justin J: Lead Dadaist.url: http://dadamailpro ...Continue Reading

This sounds especially helpful. Thanks for continuing to improve the project, Justin.

A few more things I've been working on: * The installer now pre-runs the tests to see if things like your SQL connection, Bounce Handler login, SES credentials are working, so that when you're upgrading, you don't have to do this yourself. I know this saves me a few button clicks. * You'll now be able to choose if you'd like to see message previews of mass mailings in either the modal window (that's how things work now) or in a new window. Sometimes it' ...Continue Reading

Hello everyone, A few new features will be found in the next version of Dada Mail concerning discussion lists, both dealing with moderating. The first is being able to set exactly what addresses should need to be moderated, rather than, "everyone" or, "everyone, except these people". Similar to this, you can set to only moderate subscribers who have only been members for a short period of time, like a day or a week, or a month. That should stop abuse from members who hav ...Continue Reading

Hello everyone, I'm working on trying to make subscriptions easier for people to integrate into their website. Subscription forms have been getting a little unwieldy, what with profile fields, captchas, consents, etc. My idea is to have a simple-as-can-be (which is still filled with bells/whistles) subscription form available for someone to then use as they see fit. So, if they want to just link to the screen that has it, they can - like this: https://dadamailproject.com/cgi-bin/dada/mai ...Continue Reading
