I have run ANALYZE right before running this query. I will run EXPLAIN ANALYZE when I can. I started running the query when I sent the first email and it is still running. Looke like it longer than an hour.
I will post the results of EXPLAIN ANALYZE in a few hours when I get them.

This plan looks fairly reasonable if the rowcount estimates are accurate. Have you ANALYZEd the table lately? You might need to bump up the statistics target for the msg_log_time column to improve the quality of the estimates. It would be useful to see EXPLAIN ANALYZE results too (yes I know it'll take you an hour to get them...) regards, tom lane ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 6: Have you searched our list archives? http://archives.postgresql.org
