How do integrate project attachments and messages and between Basecamp and Dropbox?

Is there an application which can integrate Dropbox with Basecamp in such way so that I have all Basecamp attachments and messages inside my Dropbox? I.e., if just edit a file in Dropbox it will be uploaded into Basecamp automatically?

I haven't used their service, but CloudHQ seems to offer what you need.

From their website about the Basecamp / Dropbox integration:

CloudHQ simplifies management of Google Docs, Basecamp, and Dropbox files Manage all your Dropbox and Basecamp files directly from a Google Docs interface CloudHQ will continuously synchronize Dropbox, Basecamp, and Google Docs CloudHQ can also backup Basecamp projects and Google Docs to Dropbox

I recommend use of cloudHQ service. Real time and continuos synchronization by cloudHQ will keep track of files for changes and copy files with a very short delay after the change has occurred. Here are step by step instructions on how to setup to synchronize your Basecamp projects with Dropbox: blog cloudHQ

One service called Zapier (disclaimer, I'm a cofounder) offers exactly this (plus a lot more), I invite you to check it out. We have the ability to send Basecamp Attachment to Dropbox and also Sync New Dropbox File to Basecamp.

It looks a lot like this:

If you have any questions about how we do this, I am more than happy to answer them: just email me at myfirstname@zapier.com.

The problem with Zapier is that if I modify a file it will not replace it :( And it I do something on Dropbox (i.e., delete or modify a file) it will not automatically replace it with version from Basecamp. –  Robert Grezan Mar 11 '13 at 0:44
