I *think* what the above is referring to is something like "if an sql
query tosses an error, email the dba"  or "if there is an authentication
failure email the dba".  It might also refer to "if we have less than 5%
of disk space left email the DBA". I don't think we can do all of those
things directly inside postgresql, at least not easily (and I would be
willing to except pgmail/triggers as easy since I use them all the time
for other types of alerts)   Perhaps someone with more m$ experience can
shed some light?
