OutlookStatView doesn't require any installation process or additional dll files.
In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - OutlookStatView.
If you have only one profile in your Outlook, and this profile doesn't require any password, you can run
OutlookStatView even without starting Outlook, and it'll automatically scan the mailbox of your current Outlook profile.
Otherwise, it's recommended to open Outlook in the right profile before starting OutlookStatView.
After running OutlookStatView, the 'MailBox Scan Options' window will be displayed.
This window allows to choose to scan your mailbox only in specific dates range.
For example, if you want to get the statistics only for January 2010,
you should choose the dates range from 01/01/2010 and up to 02/01/2010 (the last day won't be included)
When you restrict the scan to short dates range, the scan process will be much faster then scanning the entire mailbox.
After choosing 'Ok' in the options window, OutlookStatView will start to scan your mailbox and then display the statistics about your email activity.
Be aware that the scanning process may take from a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on the size of your mailbox and your hardware.
