Installing Dada Mail

Keep your web apps up to date and close the door on hackers

Anytime you add an application to your website, such as a store, blog, bulletin board, email form, or any other dynamic page or web application, you could be adding functionality that a hacker can use to gain access to your data, and possibly do damage. MacHighway recommends that you frequently check for updates and use only trusted and well scripted applications, like the ones offered through MacHighway..

For detailed information on choosing a suitable script and checking for updates, please review our knowledgebase article here.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a 500 hourly email limit per domain. If you send over this amount in any hour most of the e-mails will bounce back with a undeliverable error. Mailing lists larger than 5,000 are not allowed. If your mailing list contains more than 500 email addresses, please look here for instructions on throttling your outgoing messages.

There are two ways to automatically install DadaMail through your cPanel. Through Simple Scripts, or QuickInstall.

SimpleScripts Instructions

6. You have the option to specify what directory you would like DadaMail installed in, which is the field after the domain name. (If the directory doesn't exist, Simple Scripts will create it for you)

7. Check the box to agree to the terms and conditions and then click the Complete button.

8. The resulting page will contain your new DadaMail site URL, login URL, username and password (These can all be changed at any later time through the DadaMail admin section).
