Well, you can tweak the specifics, but I'd use gmail, IFTT and pushbullet to do different parts of this. You can set IFTT to trigger off an action on a channel on a message from a specific email address on gmail. I'd use pushbullet's chrome extention or the desktop app to trigger off a notification on your PC though you can pick something else - even some ...

No. As of now, there doesn't seem to be any app that can selectively synchronize different labels for your Gmail account. Actually, if I need to have something to be always available offline, I would just clip it to my note-taking application on my phone (such as Evernote or Google Keep), which will also be syncing the data to the cloud so that the data is ...

You could use Gmelius, a Gmail extension that works with Google Chrome. Along with many other features (like streamlining the Gmail interface), it has a[n admittedly beta] feature which allows you to tell whether or not any service at all is tracking your email usage by a helpful little red eye. Demo:

I use Minimalist for Everything. It is free, does work with chrome, and I didn't notice any slowdown in the Gmail interface. The app can be activated and desactivated, which would act the same way as a "hide incoming emails" button. There is no setting by default to hide Inbox count or to unbold the thing, but you could hide the whole sidebar, the spam-...

GmailAutoBcc does exactly this. It's a userscript compatible with Chrome/Firefox that allows you to set a default BCC OR CC address in Gmail. To use in Chrome, install Tampermonkey (a userscript manager), and then the script. To configure whether you want BCC or CC, go to the script in Tampermonkey and on line 100, replace header = "bcc"; with header = "...

Can I suggest taking a look at MailPile - it is early days yet but looks promising.

I use Proton Mail, which is a secure mail service. For paid contributors, they offer the ability to link the DNS record of a domain that I own to their system, so that I can use the proton mail system as "the official" mail for that domain. This means that sending email to my_address@my_personal_domain.tld results in the mail appearing in my ...

Since you have mentioned that "Thunderbird" was slow, I have used "Mailspring" It is lightweight, good looking, has calendar Integration support and you can personalise the tool up-to a certain level. There other opensource tools which are having some good features. You can search for them and find out the best alternative.

Use Google Apps Script. It has a Mail Service and a Gmail Service that could be used to send emails. With the Gmail Service it could read the content of your mailbox even it could change some Gmail settings. Reference https://developers.google.com/apps-script/guides/sheets

You should look into WebRTC, a browser-to-browser chat technology included in at least Firefox (and probably Chrome as well). Firefox used to have a built-in GUI for it called Hello, but that seems to have been removed. There is probably an extension that uses the built-in support for it, though.

I now use the Markdown here browser extension for this. Of course this is not HTML, as mentioned in my question, but it allows the emails to be edited "with code" (Markdown) and do CTRL+ALT+M to have the rendered output. That's the closest solution I found to what I was looking for. Finally Markdown is even better than editing HTML directly (If you are ...

Unsubscribe requests do not work all the time. Legitimate companies might honor them, while shady businesses - the very ones you want to avoid - will just use the unsubscribe request to confirm that your email is used and to send you even more spam. You should instead blacklist the offending sending address on your mailclient or webmail (practically all of ...

Have you tried CircleBack? Syncs with Gmail/Yahoo, available on the web/Android/iPhone, seems to be a good fit.

You can do the same without any email client. I have experienced lagging and other issues with Outlook. Mail Clients often skip the attachments and the contents of the original message. That results in an incomplete download of emails to local storage. Relying on them for a local backup is mere foolishness. I may suggest you a paid tool that archives the ...

If you can get your mailbox into an MS Outlook PST format on your local machine, X1 Search, http://www.x1.com/, works well locally. I am using it to manage my current slice of mail, going back to 2008, about 4.2 GB of mail, about 10K of messages, and the existing PST structure is kept. I have an offline mail store that has been moderately curated with my X1, ...

I'm not sure if I fully understand your question. If you want to automate this, I can't recommend google apps script enough(I can help more indepth with that if needed but that's more suited with the google apps script SO tag).

You could try loading the MBOX file into an IMAP server that uses MBOX for back-end storage. I believe Dovecot does this. Then you could browse the mailbox with an IMAP client.
