Collect email statistics/analytics, show productivity metrics
Even if you used a web based (i.e. keen.io) graphing library, it would be really cool to have a bunch of statistics like time spent daily on managing email, average time to response, percentage of useless email not read or responded to, etc etc.

Literally just arrived at this page while I was googling for such solution.
I am more interested to see some graphs for amount emails I receive per day, weeks, month, type of emails I receive, times of email arrival.
Nowadays emails are one of the busiest information channels. And we have to learn and understand how this channel works and act accordingly to improve its quality, e.g unsubscribe, change emailing habits etc
Great idea! It would be helpful if I can see how much time I've spent in any given week handling e-mail and how many mails I've processed and written.
