git-am foo.eml ; git commit --amend


vi foo.eml ; git am foo.eml


patch -p1 < foo.eml ; git commit -a --author "foo bar <foo at bar>"

git-am should only be used for patches that are 100% correct, if they 
aren't, fixup is needed.

You can ask the person to resubmit the patch with a proper message (it's 
not that hard) or fix the message yourself when applying it (not that 
hard either).
Creating a loop-hole for mailed-in patches would be madness since people 
will start to abuse it ("the rules don't apply to emailed patches").
