I'm a huge fan of mutt mail reader and Maildir.
My mutt spawn vim in console, and I can chat with anyone as fast, as in any faddish messenger.
Maildir is cool.
The following bash script I use to print info about new emails in Maildir (From and Subject):
#!/bin/bash if [ ! -z "$(ls -A ~/Maildir/new/)" ]; then cat ~/Maildir/new/* | grep "^\(From\|Subject\):" fi
(Adjust it to your folders.)
This script prints new email counts in each Maildir folder:
#!/bin/bash cd ~/Maildir find . -name new | sort | while read LINE; do files=$(find "$LINE" -type f -name '*' -print | wc -l) if [ "$files" != "0" ]; then echo $LINE - $files | sed 's/\/new//g' fi done
./.Archives - 4 ./.mail-lists - 2 ./notifications - 1 ./.SPAM - 8 ./.Trash - 105
Now about mailing lists I'm subscribed to. Can I see a statistics, what today's trends are?

Can you do this in your favorite email client? Or maybe google mail, god forbid me?
I also use mairix as a search engine for my Maildir emails. (The only issue with it is that it can't handle utf-8.)
I probably should upgrade to mu
Anyway, call this Python script from mutt ('|' (Pipe to command), then type ./search.py). The 'From' field of the email message you're currently at will be passed to the script:
#!/usr/bin/env python3 import fileinput, os for line in fileinput.input(): if line.startswith ("From:"): line=line.split() s=line[-1] if s=='<' and s[-1]=='>': s=s[1:] s=s[:-1] print (s) os.system ("mairix -f ~/mail/.mairixrc tf:" + s) exit(0) print ("Error, can't parse this: ",line)
Depending on mairix's config file, all your correspondence with that email will be gathered in 'Search' folder, which can be browsed in mutt.
