Thunderbird - Temporary file problem

Hi all
I just setup Thunderbird 1.0.6 and am trying to send out my first e-mail but I keep getting this message:

Sending of message failed
Unable to open the temporary file /tmp/nsmail.html. Check your
'Temporary Directory' setting.

I have been to the Mozilla page and on the boards - about four people asked this same question but no-one has responded. Any help would be much appreciated.
BTW - I am running 10.3.9.

have you tried repairing permissions on your OSX installation? It sounds like the permissions on the /tmp dir might not be correct...

it's in Disk Utility (in Utilities folder), one of the first aid options.
