It does work for me now, and probably for you too.  :-)

All email to @postgresql.org addresses go into this email system:

	http://webmail.postgresql.org/imp/login.php

I used to have a .forward file in my shell home directory so all email
went to my pgman(at)candle(dot)pha(dot)pa(dot)us address, but when I started getting a
lot of spam from momjian(at)postgresql(dot)org, I removed the .forward file, so
I was unsure where my email was going.  When Josh Berkus wanted to use
the momjian(at)postgreql(dot)org address for press contacts, I had to get it
working again.  I logged into that web account and had +99% spams. 
Since Marc has added procmail spam tags, I have now re-added my .forward
file, and use the procmail tags Marc adds to help my system learn about
spam before discarding the email.
