How to get count of emails in my Gmail for each sender

Hello Guys,

I'm using Gmail. I've got about 5000 emails in my inbox so far (all are read). I need to see the count of emails for each sender, i.e. a list which tells me how many emails did I receive from this person so far, and how many from this, etc.

Ideally it would be a list that I can sort, so I could know who has sent me the most emails.

Why do I wanna know this ? so I could direct the guys who send me the most emails into their separate labels away from my inbox.

Any help ?

I can use any operating system (xp, 7, linux ubunto 10.10, mac os x snow leopard), and I can use any browser.

Please advise and don't hesitate to ask if you need me to clarify or specify anything.

Thanks for your time.

Go to contacts, and click on Most Contacted on the left.  That will list the most likely candidates.  Take note of their email addresses.

Click on Mail, and do a search for each email address.  At the bottom it will tell you about how many hits you got.  (1 - 20 of about 90, etc.)

Thank you for your help, but that shows the people whom I send/receive/chat with, etc. I receive my most emails from emails which I don't interact with as often.

Please tell me about a way to know the count of emails for each person/bot who has sent me emails. I am hoping for a list that can be sorted descendingly.

If you download an application, such as Mozilla Thunderbird, you can set it up to download all of your email via IMAP.  Once it's all downloaded, you can sort by sender, and you'll be able to see which ones send the most.
