I have a mailbox in Gmail and I would like to create a graph of messages received per day.

What methods could I use for getting out a count per day, such as this:

11/2    40
12/2    27
13/2    15
14/2    65

(I can access it by IMAP/POP3 and use a local solution, but nothing immediately comes to mind other than writing a script on a .mbox file!)

Graph Your Inbox is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to graph Gmail activity over time.

hope this helps.

Came here to recommend the same thing. Guy who did graphyourinbox was an awesome guy. He'll be missed. – seanyboy Feb 15 '11 at 0:32
Unfortunately the iGoogle gmail widget that GYI uses to work has changed and the extension no longer works. – Sam Hasler Jun 14 '12 at 11:23
