Many thanks Ken.

However after a Mail server Failure for the last 2 days on another 
machine, i've already started to re-install :(

So - since i'm about to re-install from scratch, Please could someone 
tell me how to manually adjust the /tmp partition size in BO??

Have tried to change the existing one in "self" config. I remove /tmp 
and /home, but trying to recreate anything fails stating that i have to 
input a mountpoint....(nothing else has one configured...)

I'll be looking to increase the /tmp to somewhere between 4 and 6 gig, 
whhich will get me over the problem hopefully!!!

Thanks guys again for all the help :)
