I think an option could be added to save only certain types of files > (pdf, png, jpg, docx, etc.). I think that supporting only Gnus is too specific. Not all the people use Gnus as mail reader. And the extra menu option you propose will only eat up space for people not using Gnus. I'd prefer a more generic approach working in any kind of email reader, be it rmail, gnus, mu4e, notmuch, or wunderlust. The approach can probably making use of message-mode or MML libraries from Emacs core. Also, I do not like adding yet another menu option even if it is working for other mail readers. Instead, it would be more consistent to follow what we do for dired. See interactive spec in org-attach-attach. Best, Ihor
