PSA: double check your SPF, DKIM, DMARC records

January 26th 2024 UTC

Howdy everyone. Gmaill and Yahoo! are paying very close attention to SPF, DKIM, DMARC records and it’s worth to test your mailing lists to make sure you’re sending out messages with the correctly compliance. I wrote a bit on how to get you started here: SPF, DKIM, DMARC: Are You All Set With the New Email Sending Requirements? -- Justin J: Lead Dadaisturl:         dadamailproject.comemail:    justin@PROTECTEDtwitter:  @dadamailDada Mail Annou ...Continue Reading

Doug, there was a corrupted download of Pro Dada v11.22.0 that I reuploaded late last afternoon. If you downloaded it sometime yesterday, maybe just start from scratch and redownload the distribution. If you want to double check the sha256 checksums are something I release - it’s how I verified the reuploaded distro was then not corrupted. The Dada Mail distro that’s downloaded from sourceforge looks ok,   -- Justin J: Lead Dadaisturl:         dadamailproject.comemail:   ...Continue Reading

V11.22.0 install issue

September 19th 2023 UTC

Hi Justin, Apologies if this is tiresome, but I cannot find any info in the support doc or this forum – hence my question. I have had several successfully running lists for some while now. Earlier this year I migrated them to a different hosting company (20i). The overall experience has been great, but I have had one or two clunks with mailing list messages. So I decided that I should upgrade and downloaded 11.22.0 and uncompress script. Firstly, running the script in the browser would fail until rem ...Continue Reading

widespread blocking of mail servers

September 11th 2023 UTC

Hi everyone - if you’re sending using a local mail server on a shared host, make sure your mail server isn’t blocked: For the past weeks, many, many clients are telling me they cannot send messages out, and this is why. If you haven’t considered it already, move to a third party email mail server like Amazon SES/Mailgun/etc. I’ll be releasing a version of Dada Mail with Mailgun API support baked in to make options a bit easier. Work on that is being done here: ...Continue Reading
