Mail Trends lets you analyze and visualize your email (as extracted from an IMAP server). You can see:

  • Distribution of messages by year, month, day, day of week and time of day
  • Distribution of messages by size and your top 40 largest messages
  • The top senders, recipients and mailing lists you're on.
  • Distributions of senders, recipients and mailing lists over time
  • The distribution of thread lengths and the lists and people that result in the longest threads
