Drag and drop is applet's client side behaviour and uploading is brought about through applet's network connection. So there two thing to achieve to reach what you want to do.

Find some drag and drop api, ie the classes that give your applet this ability and then make connection to some server to send email file to it.

You may consider SwingML for GUI,
