OmniFocus create task from email
I'm trying to modify the default mail integration script to include attachments. I've never worked with AppleScript, and I'm really not sure what I'm doing, but this is what I have so far... Any help at all would be appreciated.

using terms from application "Mail"
-- Trims "foo <>" down to ""
on trim_address(theAddress)
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to "<"
set WithoutPrefix to item 2 of theAddress's text items
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to ">"
set MyResult to item 1 of WithoutPrefix's text items
on error
set MyResult to theAddress
end try
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to {""} --> restore delimiters to default value
return MyResult
end trim_address

on process_message(theMessage)
tell application "OmniFocus"
log "OmniFocus calling process_message in MailAction script"
end tell
-- Allow the user to type in the full sender address in case our trimming logic doesn't handle the address they are using.
set theSender to sender of theMessage
set trimmedSender to my trim_address(theSender)
tell application "OmniFocus"
set AllowedSender to allowed mail senders
if AllowedSender does not contain trimmedSender and AllowedSender does not contain theSender then
end if
end tell

set theSubject to subject of theMessage
set singleTask to false
if (theSubject starts with "Fwd: ") then
-- Whole forwarded messages shouldn't split.
set singleTask to true
set theSubject to text 6 through -1 of theSubject
end if
set theText to theSubject & return & content of theMessage
tell application "OmniFocus"
tell default document
set tTasks to parse tasks with transport text theText as single task singleTask
set theTask to item 1 of tTasks
tell application "Mail"
set attachCount to count of mail attachments of theMessage
repeat with theAttachmentIndex from 1 to attachCount
set theAttachment to item theAttachmentIndex of mail attachments of theMessage
tell application "OmniFocus"
set theNote to note of theTask
add item theAttachment to attachments of theNote
set note of theTask to theNote
end tell
end repeat
end tell
end tell
end tell
end process_message

on perform mail action with messages theMessages
set theMessageCount to count of theMessages
repeat with theMessageIndex from 1 to theMessageCount
my process_message(item theMessageIndex of theMessages)
end repeat
on error m number n
tell application "OmniFocus"
log "Exception in Mail action: (" & n & ") " & m
end tell
end try
end perform mail action with messages
end using terms from
