Re: POP3 connection failed - server now TLS 1.2 ?

June 21st 2021 UTC

Hmm - in the SMTP connection/mail test, I ping the server before trying to connect to it to send a message - we could do something similar for POP3 and IMAP connections. I’ll add that as a feature request: [1] -- Justin J: Lead Dadaist url: [2] email: [3]justin@PROTECTEDtwitter: [4]@dadamail Dada Mail Announcements: [5] On Jun 18, 2021, at 1 ...Continue Reading

Re: POP3 connection failed - server now TLS 1.2 ?

June 18th 2021 UTC

Hello again A short epilogue in case something similar happens to others. I went ahead and added setting the SSL_version to explicity include TLS 1.2 but it made no difference. I tried setting NET_POP3 => 1 in the config CPAN_DEBUG_SETTINGS but the debug messages only started turning up in the error log after the problem had been cured. What did help was trying to telnet to the mail server from the 'jailed shell' I have access to on the server where Dada Mail is installed. This showed that ...Continue Reading

POP3 connection failed - server now TLS 1.2 ?

June 12th 2021 UTC

Hello Justin and developers My list has been running reliably since November 2019, with an update to 11.11.2 in September. However, the list has not sent out any messages since 21st May (apart from a message to me on 25th May saying a non-subscriber had tried to post). The shared host error_log file has messages every five minutes that include "AH01220: Timeout waiting for output from CGI script/home/very_long_path/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi" and "Script timed out before returning ...Continue Reading

SendGrid and Amazon SES API heads up

March 17th 2021 UTC

I'm fielding a few support requests concerning both Amazon SES and Sendgrid. Both have slightly changed the way you can connect to them. Sendgrid now only allows using an API key as the password for their SMTP gateway: And as I mentioned earlier this year, Amazon SES is turning off the older version of their authentication scheme, so make sure to update to the latest version of Dada Mail if yo ...Continue Reading

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

If you are just looking for support Dada Mail, consult the message boards at:

To post to this list, send a message to:

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
  • 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.
