Datamining for my Gmail Account

I have a gmail account I've used with clients over three years.  Around 6,000 messages inside.  Is there any application I can use to do some datamining on all this?  Something that can take in all these messages and extract the obvious things, email addresses, phone numbers, dates, number of replies, etc.  And, the less obvious things: times sent, geographic locations, pictures from users, social media links, and other items that can help me to discern patterns in this tranche of information.

Sincerely

OT

This might not be what you want to hear, but I don't know of any software that does what you're asking for. It wouldn't be too hard for some one with some programming capabilies to throw something like this up for you. You could look for a freelance programmer and pay for this requirement.

Alternatively, you could can use Thunderbird with Gmail via IMAP. Thunderbird’s search capabilities would require just the headers which could potentially extract some of the data you're looking for. You could go the route of a custom search or a simple search by ‘sender’ or ‘recipient’ to see the conversations. You could use the ImportExportTools Thunderbird extension to save the selected messages.
 
Hope that helps somewhat. Good luck.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
