Mailing an MP3 file to my iPod

I can mail a podcast to myself and get it on my iPod.
The message comes through right away, then I have to click on a link
in the message to download the attachment.

But if I go back to an older message, where I have previously downloaded
the podcast, it is gone and I have to do it again.

Where are these files stored, how long do they last, and how can I move
them to somewhere permanent (like the iTunes library).

Thanks a lot.

I tried opening it to Dropbox (which I already had installed).  That works, but I'm still not confident about the long term availability of the file since my Dropbox storage is much larger than my iPod.  I afraid the old files will get wiped out in the next synch.

So I have installed Evernote.  If I use it only for the weekly podcasts, the free 60MB upload limit gives me a safety factor of 2 or 3.

Much easier than trying to synch with iTunes on my desktop.

I wish Apple were a little friendlier, but this is good enough.

Glad to know you have solved the problem.
