comment Does anyone know of an automation tool that will perform actions on sending or receiving of an email?
If you are just testing the capabilities of the software and not any public domains, I would suggest you run locally some small mailer and smtp server, and use those from the test script for sending and receiving the emails.

@PhilKirkham Good point. At least for adblock statistics are available at addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/statistics/… and answer seems to be about 15 000 000 daily users.
