One idea is to be able to add a search string in email link types.  

For example: [[gnus:nnml.orgmode#6548::org.pdf]] would fetch the mail
#6548 in nnml.orgmode Gnus group and search for the string "org.pdf" in
the body of the mail (this could also be a regexp). Then RET will open
this PDF attachment with the right app.

Org uses the local mailcap setup to decide what application to open a
file with.  Don't you have this on your computer?

~$ man mailcap

M-x org-store-link in dired-mode will store a link to the file under the
point. But maybe you already know this and I missed the question...
