Hi Justin,

I'm finally updating to Dada 11.20.0 from 11.0. I know you won't possibly be able to recall, but I have had nothing but failure trying to update past that version over the past several years. No idea why. We use Bridge exclusively for our lists, not the web interface. We've been having issues with many of our members not seeing their messages for hours or at all, and sometimes multiple times after a long time. Each of our 2 lists has membership of ~200. The cronjob runs every 5 minutes via curl. Let me know if you need any other details on the config.

After the installation of 11.20.0 seemed to work (no error messages), I tried logging into the admin interface and got this:

The log reports the issue is on line 485 of DADA/
[Tue Oct 25 16:50:06 2022] mail.cgi: HTML to Plaintext conversion with HTML::FormatText::WithLinks not successful - falling back to convert_to_ascii() at /home/<redacted>/public_html/<redacted>/cgi-bin/dada//DADA/App/ line 1196.
Warning: something's wrong at /home/<redacted>/public_html/<redacted>/cgi-bin/dada/DADA/ line 485, <CONFIG> line 1.
Here's what's there. Seems like it was enroute to a 405 anyway?
Not sure what to make of it. Could you please assist?
