Dada Mail


Dada Mail is a contemporary, mature and intuitive web-based e-mail list management system.

Dada Mail handles Closed-Loop Opt-in subscriptions, sending complex announce-only and/or discussion mailing list messages with an advanced, fault-tolerant mass mailing monitor, supports the archiving/viewing/searching/resending/syndicating (rss, atom feeds) of sent messages and doing all this and a whole lot more with style.

Dada Mail can handle custom subscriber fields and searching these fields, allowing you to send mass mailing to only part of your mailing list. Dada Mail's email templating system allows you to create targeted and completely custom email messages (mail merging) for each and every one one of your subscribers.

Dada Mail is bundled with additional plugins and extensions to extend Dada Mail's capabilities. Some of the plugins/extensions support advanced bounce handling, clickthrough tracking, mass mail scheduling, blog interfaces of archived messages, AJAX subscription form trickery and lots of other surprises.

Dada Mail produces HTML5 web content and sticks to best practices when creating email messages. Write Once: Distribute Everywhere. Dada Mail is free software that you're able to use, modify, share and enhance under the terms of the GNU General Public License. Dada Mail is written in Perl because we love Perl.

Dada Mail's system requirements are minimal: it runs as a CGI script, requires only Perl 5.10.1, supports multiple SQL backend flavors, bundles all of its CPAN Perl module dependencies, and comes with a web-based installer. Download/Upload the distro, run the installer script.

Dada Mail works well in shared hosting environments thanks to its mass sending throttling capabilities. Dada Mail can also work well with large mailing lists that require a third party email service, like Amazon SES.
