Wanted: Mailbox activity tool


I’m hoping that someone out there can help me find a tool or script that can show me ‘mailbox activity’.

In a nutshell, what I want to be able to do is:

  1. ‘Tell’ the script/tool which mailbox I want it to scan.
  2. The script runs and provides a histogram (or table – not fussed) of activity over time, so I can see where there have been more (or less) emails in and out that I’ve filed in that mailbox.

Environmentally, I’m interested in having this for Apple’s Mail application, running on an IMAP mail box. (So the script would probably have to talk to the IMAP server, as not all emails are necessarily available on the computer.)

I’ve tried a web search, but ‘mail activity’ tends to bring back a lot of noise and no substance.

Can anybody out there help me? Please leave a comment.

  1. Hi Laura,

    Thanks for the links. You’ve had better luck searching than I have. I’ll take a look at these and hopefully one or more will be what I’m looking for,
