I miss the ability to assign issues created via email to specific team members. It would be very nice to write something like

Project: foo
Assigned-To: John Doe

in the email body and have the new issue assigned to John Doe automatically.

I am pretty sure you can already but cant find the documentation. Example see this issue #2316

No, I can't. Sorry.

I even checked out the code itself


and, though I don't know ruby, I can pretty much assure you that there is no support for Assign To (nor for Target Version, btw) parameter setup via email.

I submitted a patch to update assigned-to and some other fields. Please see #2702.
After applied my patch, you can update assigned-to field with mail address or login id.
