I think this will answer your question:

Document libraries : You can send documents as e-mail attachments to a document library that is set up to receive e-mail. There is no need to switch to Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, search for the document, and then add it to the library. You can also choose how the versions of a document that are submitted through e-mail are handled.

Thanks! Will it work for SP2010 also? –  neo269 May 30 '11 at 13:33
Yes, here's a link to the SharePoint 2010 instructions to setup email enabled document libraries. nothingbutsharepoint.com/sites/itpro/Pages/… –  Rob Windsor May 30 '11 at 18:01
