Thanks, I'll check it out. I didn't see much evidence on the SugarCRM site that they are interested in an DB besides MySQL. But, it is also my hope that the core SugarCRM project will come around to supporting EDB/PostgreSQL (once we have done the port for them and committed to testing and maintaining it).

Subject: Re: MySQL to PostgreSQL for SugarCRM
dennis, look at vtiger crm (http://www.vtiger.com)
vtiger is a fork of sugarcrm and are 100% commited to open source.
(unlike sugar, who offer the full version only for purchase)
and they actively want to support more databases.
