I sometimes do this to store a document that I want to keep quickly from a 
public PC.
I basically create a draft-email and attach the document to this.
This can be done with any email-client (including webmail)

As for using it as a proper document-storage, you would need to find something 
that stores documents as attachments to emails/drafts in an IMAP-folder, but I 
would assume there are better tools for that already.
