Can email attachments become bug attachments?

I tested sending an email to our bugs@ address, and included a small (30K) attachment.  The attachment didn't make it into the bug.

I think this would be a great feature.  We get a lot of mileage out of teaching our staff to hit Print Screen and paste the picture of the error into an email (works very well in Outlook).  Currently the emails come to me and I manually save the picture to disk and then attach it to a bug I just created.

Thanks,
Josh

Email attachments do become bug attachments.

Save the image to disk.  Then attach it as a gif or jpg file and it will work.

If you just paste it into email its embedded as an ole object usually.. this doesn't quite work.. see
