Never used Postgresql, so cannot comment about it.  I like MySQL a lot
though.   The online docs are excellent and the user mailing list is
friendly and helpful.  And of course MySQL integrates nicely w/ Apache and
PHP3.  Also, Postfix supports MySQL based user tables.  Same with ProFTP
(if they ever get the security issues ironed out...)  I don't know if the
same can be said for postgresql.  For MySQL info you should visit
http://www.mysql.com if you've not already.
