Mailing lists

Since PostgreSQL is an open source DBMS, its creators communicate with each other through mailing lists. We archive them on our website for your convenience — reading them, you can keep up with Postgres innovations and emerging projects.

Here you can access PostgreSQL mailing lists for Postgres users and developers.

User lists

pgsql-general (280709)

 — 

General discussion area for users. Apart from compile, acceptance test, and bug problems, most new users will probably only be interested in this mailing list (unless they want to contribute to development or documentation). All non-bug related questions regarding PostgreSQL's version of SQL, and all installation related questions that do not involve bugs or failed compiles, should be restricted to this area. Please note that many of the developers monitor this area.
