Google has announced the availability of a new tool that lets you track some monthly statistics of your Gmail account.
Developed by a Top Contributor, Gmail Meter is a feature that analyzes personal habits and provides a user report.
Among the compiled data are numbers on message volume, daily traffic, traffic patterns, email categories, times before the first reply, word count, conversations and the main senders and recipients.
To enable Gmail Meter, go to Google Docs and open a spreadsheet. Click on the Tools menu and select "Script Gallery." Search for "Gmail Meter" and click Install. A new item will appear in your spreadsheet.
Once that's done, click Gmail Meter and select "Get a report." You can then choose the type of report you wish to receive monthly.
