Merge email message with attachment in Sharepoint

I have a Sharepoint document library that it working and processing email correctly.  I have it setup to group incoming email by subject and to store the original email message along with the attachment.  It is processing the incoming mail correctly per the default behavior in that two items are created for each email sent: 1) the email message body and 2) the attachment.

My question is there any function (inbuilt or 3rd party) that will merge the two records into one?  Ideally, I would like the attachment (always images) to be the record in sharepoint, and the email message to be an attribute/field related to the image.

Hello

To have this kind of behaviour use a discussion board list instead of document library. This way the message title will be used as item title, message body will be used as item description. The message attachments will be put as item's attachment.

We were never able to get this to work.  We ultimately went with an Alfresco solution.
