Easy access to mail files from NAB

I added two buttons called "Open Mail File" and "Add Mail icon" to the button bar on the NAB.

I am always having to either open or add mail files for admin purposes. I usually go into the person's entry in the address book, find the location of the mail file and then open the database using File-Database-Open. I added two buttons called "Open Mail File" and "Add Mail icon" to the button bar on the NAB. Now, all I have to do is highlight the person?s entry and hit the button. I have also hidden the buttons from the everyday user.

 Open Mail File button formula: @PostedCommand([FileOpenDatabase]; MailServer : MailFile; ""; ""; "") Add Mail Icon button formula: @PostedCommand([AddDatabase]; MailServer : MailFile) Hide When formula: @IsNotMember(@UserName;@DbLookup( "":""; "Server1/ACME" ; "Groups" ;"Notes Support";"Members"))
