I'm starting to do some well needed spring cleaning in my Gmail and in that regarding I could really use, either a built-in search / aggregation function within Gmail or a Chrome Extension or a Web application which connects to Gmail which could tell me that since the dawn of time I've got X numbers of mails from this sender / email-addressee, X numbers of mails from that sender / email-address and so on, so I don't waste time searching for a sender, mark all and delete if there are only a few mails.
I'd much rather get cracking on those sender / domains which has provided me with several hundreds of mails over the years.

I really searched the web for such a method but with no luck.

Hope some of you can shed some light on how to do this best or if there is an alternative to "cleaning" up your Gmail account.

Have a look at Mailstrom.

Mailstrom unlocks the patterns hidden in your Inbox to reveal the fastest path to Inbox Zero.

Slice through tens, hundreds, or thousands of emails at once. Use periodically or every day, depending on your mail volume.
