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.
