Include smart email attachment to SM records instead of in the email itself

PROBLEM:
When sending email to smartemail with an attachment, the original email with the attachment inside is added to the SM records (e.g. Interactions, etc). To view the attachment users need to first open the email from the SD and then the attachment.

REQUIREMENT:
Include Smart Email attachments in SM records instead of in the email itself.

SAMPLE SCENARIO:
1. Login to SM as Admin.
2. Set up Smart Email to create an SD
3. Send an email with an attachment (could be an img, txt) to create a new SD
4. Once the SD is created, go to the attachment section of the SD record
5. Notice it only contains attached a copy of the email sent and inside the email it is the attachment. This is how it works OOB
6. Customer will like to have the attachment included on the SD record too, for example the img or txt to save them the extra work of having to open the email to see the attachment.

CURRENT WORKAROUNDS:
Open the email attached to the ticket to see if there is a file included there. This is not an user friendly option.

USER SCENARIO:
Want to give the user the opportunity to see the attachments on their tickets.

USER IMPACT:
The issue affects multiple users and incurs in user frustration due to the fact of having to search for the attachments inside emails attached to their tickets. It takes more time for the users to be able to review the attachments to work on the tickets.

BUSINESS JUSTIFICATION:
Save time to process incoming request and avoid user frustration. Enhance solution adoption.
