Save attachments from a single email

So I am trying to create a PAD flow that:

  1. Reads incoming emails from Exchange
  2. Fetches new emails with a certain subject line (contains an ID)
  3. Processes each email by:
    1.  Save attachments contained in a single email (message) to a folder named /incoming/<ID-DateTime> 


where the attachments will be further processed.


The only way I found to get the attachments was via the Retrieve Exchange email messages action where all attachments are dumped into one folder, introducing a level of a mess if emails of a certain type contain some standard attachments, imo.


I know the .Attachments section in the email Item object contains absolute links to each attachment but it would be much cleaner to be able to save attachments when dealing with an individual email/message object.


Is there a foreseeable effort of adding more actions to email manipulation? If not, can I add this as an idea somewhere, just in case?

And in general, is there a roadmap anywhere regarding development of new/improved Actions?


Any input is appreciated.
