To properly recognize emails as sent, make sure to configure all email addresses you write from as identities for your email account. You can do so under account settings > select your account > click button more identities at the bottom and add or modify identities as you need. Use the add-on options to define identities for local accounts.
Also keep in mind, that the processing of large mailboxes can take a lot of time.
Privacy and Security
ThirdStats is fully contained and doesn't contact any third-party CDN servers. It runs locally without any webserver. ThirdStats stores processed data in a cache, but you can clear and disable it. ThirdStats will never store this data elsewhere, nor sent or sell it anywhere. ThirdStats needs permissions to access accounts, read email headers and download export files. ThirdStats will always seek to minimize use of permissions where possible, and use granular permissions where available. Thunderbirds Permissions API is currently limited to access the whole email instead of the email header only.
See the Security Policy for details how ThirdStats values your privacy.
A new chart showing the distribution of emails in folders was introduced. Number of emails per folder are visible in arc size and color intensity. Only non-empty folders are shown, each folder has a received and sent segment.
Provides the possibility to export stats data in JSON format. The export button is next to the options button in the top right corner of the stats page. It's always an export of the currently displayed data, making it possible to adjust the export by using the filter fields (accounts, folders, date range and contacts).
Filter for Contacts
A filter for contacts was added, showing stats for all messages, where this contact is the sender or one of the recipients. This filter provides a drop-down list of all email addresses shown in the most contacted charts.
ThirdStats is now available in Hungarian - many thanks to @ovari. The translation in your own language is incomplete or missing? Help me translating ThirdStats into your language on GitLocalize.
Auto-apply Option Changes
Option changes are now being watched on the stats page and automatically updated, Changes of Dark mode, Vertical axis, Start of Week and the account colors are directly applied. All other options need a window or cache refresh. Options now have a hint symbol with a tooltip that indicates, whether the stats page or the cache has do be refreshed after changing the options value.
Fix Received/Sent Numbers
The case of email addresses wasn't handled properly when processing accounts. Now all email addresses and identities are converted to lowercase before processing them, removing the need to set the same identity in different cases.
Improve documentation and security policy
Readme feature list was adapted to the current changes. The security policy now contains FAQ. The footer of the stats page now contains a disclaimer.
