Mbox Sender Frequency
This very small tool will display mail counts grouped by sender. This is helpful to identify automated notification mails that you may want to delete from your mailbox to free up some space.
If you're curious, I wrote a blogpost in which I explain the context in which I needed this script, namely to leave GMail.
Clone this repo somewhere or download the standalone python script. You can then simply use it with :
python list_senders.py [-h] [--threshold THRESHOLD] [--group-by-email] mbox_path
for example :
Getting your mbox file from GMail
Head to Google Takeout, select Mails, and opt for the file download link version. Then be patient, and you will receive a mail with a link to your own mbox file within a few hours / days.
This was not optimized at all, so it may be quite slow, however it ran on my 4GB file within a few minutes, which was acceptable to me.
