Scan-to-email to submit documents into repository.

Is there any add-on or extension or sample script for scanning directly into Alfresco from a scan-to-email scanner?

Basically the scanner scans to PDF and emails it to a selected email address. Using the job accounting feature of the printer, the job number selected appears in the email. What is the best way to have Alfresco receive the email, store it or the attachment(s) in a space corresponding to the job number in the email, extract important email metadata and assign it to the attachment object(s), so that emails sent to a single email address have their attachments are automatically sorted and placed into spaces corresponding to job numbers?
