Well.. things did get solved..... That massive email file was being stored
and forwarded by another machine here at the institute. Once that was
removed, life could continue.

I did add the following to the file, to
limit the size of incoming and outgoing emails by including
M=500000, for the Mlocal Mprog and Mether lines...

Thanks to all that sent their ideas!
