It is not that simple, since drag and drop may involve text, pictures, URLs and not just only files. But if you just want files that exist, the current CVS version of Emacs allows you to do this when using X (i.e. not Windows or Mac OS X):

(set (make-local-variable 'x-dnd-protocol-alist)
     '(("^file:" . my-dnd-fun)))

(defun my-dnd-fun (url action)
  (let ((file (x-dnd-get-local-file-name url t)))
(vm-mime-attach-file file (or (vm-mime-default-type-from-filename file)
                  "application/octet-stream"))))

This works on Windows too, since the DND implementation has been changed to call x-dnd-handle-one-url for consistency.
