Automatically create attachments in task from forwarding an email with attachments

wilsardaukar says:
My email is also partly my inbox for tasks. If an email arrives, I can quickly turn it into a task by forwarding the mail to my Remember the milk address.

However, any attachments that are in the mail are not added to the task. Since we now can use Google Drive/Dropbox for storing attachments I would love to get a feature that automatically stores those email attachments to the configured cloud drive.

As an example about how I use this: a mail comes in with a specific proposal attached as a PDF. Now I have to manually save the PDF, forward the mail to RTM to create a task and then use 'add attachment' to upload the saved PDF. It would help if forwarding the mail was sufficient.

(Moved back from Todoist to RTM but this is one feature that I'm missing from Todoist).

The ability to send emails to the system to create tasks which retain the attached file is a very important feature which the other major task management platforms have. Workarounds like the one described above are "clunky" at best.

I echo this. Having the attachments available would be a huge help.
