Target Channel With Tags In Subject Line of Email
The inclusion of an email address per channel is great, but it needs to be tweaked a bit. Currently, there is a specific email address per channel and when you email, the subject line is included in the message. Since this information is pretty much unnecessary, it would be useful if we could have an email address per team, and then target a channel (or multiple channels) by tagging them in the subject line.
Something like <team name>@domain.com and the subject line hashtag #<channel name> for the email feature.
For example, if someone sends an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line of #general #events, then the email message (body) would get posted in the general and events channels of the team. If no hashtag is supplied, then by default, the message gets posted in the general channel (or maybe have that configurable).

Great idea, Keith, I think you're going to find it will be merged into another suggestion. I've got at least one comment out there on basically the same topic where I've asked them to take a look at how Evernote handles emailing into the application.
