Don’t know how well suited this would be for your needs, but X1 Search can be used for various types of email searches - might be worth giving it a try.

+1 on X1 Search.

Another option could be dtSearch (dtsearch.com)  What’s neat about it?  You can set it to return results synonymous with your term, set ‘fuzzy’ parameters, etc..  This can help uncover concepts.

And—- a 3rd option—noggle search (noggle.online)  It makes use of Carrot2 (carrot2.org) clustering.

And if you want something friendly on about the same level as X1, you can try Copernic Desktop Search, which is the same vintage as X1 (actually, I think it predates it by a bit). Pleasant, but dtSearch is the real powerhouse (and much more expensive than either X1 or CDS). All these are for Windows.

Oh, and there’s a new kid on the block that apparently indexes and searches e-mail: Lookeen. It integrates with Outlook, apparently – the website (http://www.lookeen.com) is pretty interesting. The desktop version (for Windows) is very reasonably priced.

FoxTrot Pro is the bees’ pyjamas for macOS, of course.

Cheers,
Bill

Interesting. Can you (or anyone else here) comment on how it compares to HoudahSpot?

I know this is an older thread, but I am curious if a solution was found? Interesting angles suggested in this thread.

Original post:
“I’ve subscribed to a lot of e-mail newsletters through the years.  Recently, I’ve discovered a bunch of them have pointers to interesting projects on the web.  Unfortunately, I am getting so many newsletters, that I can’t keep up with them.  I’d like to automate the location and extraction of the data, but until I can get my brain around enough NLP (Natural Language Processing), ML (Machine Learning), and other AI (Artificial Intelligence)  technology, to create something to do this, I should probably figure out if someone has already done this.

I’ve not seen any mention of this kind of software in the Open Source community, but that does not mean that it does not exist.  Anyone know of anything that might address even part of this effort?

Thanks.
