Neat trick, I'll use that :)

Agree the right click menu is the right place, my concern was having a
menu item that only applied when the message window was visible with
suitable contents.

Could also apply to any message window contents that recognise
filenames not just FIF results. As I said above if its automated it
doesn't matter if the file occurs several times since the open code
already has the checks to prevent opening multiple times.
