Hmm - do you get the same error, (Semaphore does not exist to delete), if you run the Schedule Jobs URL, just in your browser? Does that file, (/home/very/long/path/user/private/.dada_files/.tmp/scheduledtasks.lock) actually exist? I guess if you want a bodge, you could just remove the line that throws that warning, Look for: warn "PID: $$ Semaphore does not exist to delete at, '" . $self->lockfile; in, dada/DADA/App/ScheduledTasks.pm and just remove it, Cheers, ...Continue Reading

Justin, thank you for your reply and thank you for developing Dada Mail and making it available. The script for running Schedule::Cron is very simple and based on one of the examples supplied with Schedule::Cron. It's located in cgi-bin alongside dada and started with my SSH shell. So that it keeps going when I exit the shell, I use nohup with an ampersand to keep it in the background. So far, it's kept running. Dada Mail is run by Schedule::Cron using the precise curl command Dada Mail proposes ...Continue Reading

Hello Developers, I have just joined the list. Over the past couple of weeks, I have installed Dada Mail on the shared host of the website of the astronomy society I am involved in, to provide a discussion list.This was not without challenges (ssh cli install only, no CPAN,additional Perl modules for SSL built locally and uploaded, etc) but it is almost ready now for society members' use. Cron and crontab were also unavailable on the shared host, so I have made and uploaded Schedule::Cron, a cro ...Continue Reading

Howdy everyone, I'm working on a feature to allow you to send to >1 email addresses when you send out a test message. You can do this in one of two ways: * first is to simply type in the addresses you want the test to be sent to, similar to how it works now. Main difference is that the app will take multiple addresses instead of just one. This is done per draft message, so that list of testing addresses you send to can be different for each draft. * second way is by curating a Testers list, ...Continue Reading

Thanks, I’ll give that a try. Mary Ann "Is there a template tag that specifies the type of unsubscribe (bounce or manual)? It would be helpful to know when I get an admin email telling me about an unsubscribe whether it was a bouncing address or someone who requested unsubscription."

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:

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.
