I for one am very interested in postgresql support in vpopmail and have been quietly waiting for it. I had even inquired about the cost of finishing up the work on this list, but received no replies. Since then I have setup mysql, but would still like to use postgresql someday.
If there is anything I can do to help out, let me know. Jay Tortorelli > -----Original Message----- > From: Charles J.
