Finding the right online project manager

I can't be the only one who needs this...

I work from quite a few different computers, unfortunately. So I need some kind of central organization that's online. Basecamp would be a good choice if there were any way to organize the files you upload, but they took that option away for reasons I cannot understand. You just have to stuff all your project files in one big list and browse through them to find what you need.

I need something that lets me do multi-file uploads - I work with photos, so I can have 30 images of one item, and it's less headache to stash them on a flash drive and hope I remember to carry it everywhere than it is to upload these one by one.

I also need the ability to categorize these uploaded files - folders, tags, I can make almost anything work, it's just Basecamp offers no options at all.

I also need the ability to forward an email to a project so it becomes a task.

That's about it. I need the other basic sort of features that most of these things seem to offer. I have spent 6 hours so far, and cannot find anything that actually does all three of those things. At least not in the price range I can afford, which is... I'll consider anything that's less than about $45.

Sounds like you will need a multi-product solution.

How about dropbox for file management with basecamp for notes / orginization?

Thanks, but I actually found something that does everything I was looking for in one place. I don't know if I'm allowed to mention it by name, so I won't. :)
