I use the in OS X Lion. I would like to determine statistics about all emails sent within a timeframe (in this case, from 2010 to current). In particular, I'd like histograms for emails per day, week, month, year, most frequent hour, etc.
I am interested in pre-packaged programs, if they exist, or in scripted solutions if necessary.

heh heh, ask Apple or the NSA, they probably know more about your email habits than you do. – SpliFF Apr 30 '13 at 7:39
Do you have all your mails still stored in folders (Sent Mail or similar)? – patrix May 4 '13 at 14:56
yes, all of them are on the sent folder – flow May 4 '13 at 18:23
obvious question is how to extract dates and such – flow May 4 '13 at 18:24
