Thanks John,

Please try out the save attachment feature for inbound .grb files. Does not
work for me.
I can get it in the auto saved pskmail/files though by digging for it.

Is there a way to let Viewfax just open the .grb file when it arrives ?
Like in Airmail ?
I like Viewfax and have not tried ZyGrib yet.
