Ideally I'd like to do this in Outlook.

I'd like to find a way to look at the # of emails I get in my inbox for each day. This does not have to be real time.

Create an excel document, input the number of emails you get manually, create a graph – Ramhound Dec 8 '11 at 19:00

Check out Xobni which has some excellent tools for tracking how much you send/receive and from who.

I don't see any report that will give me the information that I need – ckliborn Dec 8 '11 at 20:49
I don't have my machine in front of me but I think if you look in the options, analytics(?) section you can see the graphs. – Mitch Dec 8 '11 at 20:53

If you can get all the emails you want to graph in one 'view' in outlook, you can copy the subject, date/time, etc. into excel and then create a graph based on that data.

There is a free Message Statistics by Date tool that does exactly what you want. I recommend it because I'm one of its developers. You just specify required Outlook folders and get the report that includes the number of sent/received/total messages as well as their size.
