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.

I added this to github awhile back but since you are working on clickthrough tracking, I thought I’d check in to see if there is any chance it might be implemented: "For the option on Profiles to 'Update Profiles, after opens/clickthroughs' there are a variety of variables based on location that can be inserted. Adding the date & time of the open/clickthrough as an option for filling that field would be helpful for weeding out addresses that have not been active on a list.” Thoughts ...Continue Reading

Thanks! And thanks for everyone else who participated in my little test. I'm really liking how this is shaping up. The current line graph on the main screen of the tracker is sort of a mess. One of the changes I made was to make the total number of recipients be on a different y axis scale than all the other information. That'll stop the rest of that info from appearing so small. Done.I think it would be a good idea to implement AWS ses open click tracking. Doesn't seem hard to do https ...Continue Reading

Howdy everyone, I've been working on bringing back the ability to see unique opens and clickthroughs in the tracker. It was removed in v11 because of GPDPR issues - the "uniqueness" of the data was done by tracking the email address, which is a pretty big no-no in this post-GDPR world without explicit consent. Instead, I'm tweaking the app to use one-way anonymous hashes rather than email addresses, created with a single-use salt. The salt is never saved within the app, so there's no ...Continue Reading

Justin, Sorry for the delay in replying. No, the semaphore error message does not occur if the scheduled jobs are run from the admin page. As far as I could tell, no lock files were being written to .tmp when the Schedule::Cron jobs ran. Thanks for the assistance in identifying the warning in the code.I have modified the warning, retaining the part to the process ID number and the last part with the code line number. This shorter message is a useful 'heartbeat' signal, in these early days of my ...Continue Reading
