Dada Mail Changelog

New in version 7.4.0

December 19th, 2014
  • Digest Messages:
  • Digest Messages are messages that are created by taking the content of many messages sent in a timespan, and putting them into a single message to then send out. See the feature overview of Digests here:
  • Subscribers can now have the option of having individual messages delivered, having a digest message delivered on a scheduled, or having messages that would have been delivered to them held from being delivered.
  • Digest Messages that are sent out (Subject, PlainText version and HTML version) can be fully customized.
  • Way back in the day, Dada Mail had Digest support - it totally stunk. This new support totally doesn't. We're really happy to finally roll out a replacement that we're proud of.
  • Schedules:
  • With Schedules, any draft message you create can now be scheduled to be sent at a later time right from within the Send a Message, or Send a Webpage screens.
  • To create a new Schedule, first go to the Send a Message, or Send a Webpage screen. Write your message! Then, click the, "Schedule..." button. Tick, "Activate" and set the time in the future you would like your message to go out. Click, "Create Schedule" and you're done!
  • Once a message has been scheduled, you may edit the message (and even reuse the schedule, if you would like!). In the list control panel, Go to: Mass Mailing - Drafts/Stationary/Schedules. Click the Schedules tab to view all your schedules.
  • Important: make sure the Mailing Monitor's cronjob is also set up. (It should already be to make sure mass mailings go smoothly.)
  • Dada Mail has had support for scheduled mailings since the inception of the Beatitude Plugin. This plugin has been marked as Deprecated, and we've taken one giant step in integrating scheduling of mass mailings into the core of Dada Mail with this release. We'll still ship with the Beatitude plugin, but (fair warning!) it's days are numbered. We'd like to integrate some more of its advanced features (recurring schedules), before we totally abandon ship on the plugin.
