I had a problem yesterday with one server that filled /tmp.  Results:

   Cannot parse /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/2402/j8LA2MqH030524.header and , MIME::Parser: can't flush: No space left on device at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/MIME/Parser.pm line 789, <GEN420> line 30. : 1 Time(s)

Reading through Mime::Parser's man page I found:
           ### Tell it where to put things:

Could MS provide us with a config parameter (maybe Temporary Disk Space) 
that we could point somewhere else (such as /var/tmp)?  I know you would 
have to hunt down every use of temp files in MS, but this could really 
help us out.

Thanks again!
