How to eMail an expense receipt to and expenses record (Expense App) ?

As I travel a lot I normally have 100's of receipts to book each month together with my expenses. I normally always have electronic copies of the receipts which have been emailed to me (e.g. flight tickets), or quick photos taken  with my smartphone (e.g. restaurant bills) or if all else fails scan them on my multifunction scanner which are then emailed as a .pdf

Either way I would like to forward these receipts via the Odoo messaging direclly to an expense record. The expenses are normally related to a project or contract.

I don't really want the hassel of uploading these to an expense record as I normally shoot and send with my smartphone as soon as I get the receipt. I have't tried emailing a document to google drive yet but that could be a solution. 


Anyone got any ideas how I can email receipts to e.g. to a project repository and then attach the emails or the  .pdf documents to an expense item record in the same way you can attach emails to customer and projects?

Any ideas would be appreciated...

Best Regards
