How can I get Picasa to organize the way I want?

I'm trying to set up a workable way for my dad to transfer photos sent to him as email attachments into Picasa. The current setup allows him to right click-save the photos to a folder (let's call it Email Pictures), and that folder is being monitored by Picasa for new photos. What is happening is that the photos are going into Picasa under a folder called Email Pictures, which is swelling to an unmanageable girth.
Photos that he transfers from his camera using "Import" from within the Picasa program are being sorted properly, from what I can tell. However, that may just be because he is creating a new dated folder each time he imports, whereas the email pictures are being added to a pre-existing folder.
I want the pictures saved into Email Pictures to be integrated into Picasa according to the date taken. Ideally, his entire Picasa library would consist of dated folders or albums (not sure which), each containing pictures taken only on that date. I also would like to avoid having him create a new folder each time he saves some photos from email. This seems like something that should be doable, but durned if I can figure it out. Can anyone help?
