URLs for Attachments
Cloud services like filepicker.io make it really easy to handle file uploads, they handle the upload to S3 and simply give you a url. However, if I want to attach this file to a mailgun message, I need to download it to my server, create the multipart mime message, and then send it to mailgun. Wouldn't it be nice if I could just provide a list of urls, and mailgun would fetch these and add them to the message as attachments?

Hey friends, any thoughts on this one?
Another common scenario is forwarding a message from one user to another. In that case, Mailgun already has the attachment, but we have to download it to our servers, then send it back to Mailgun.
