I can't think of much, but I do have a couple of questions:

- When you try all your unread or all your github notifications emails, 
approximately how many are they? For reference , I just tried with  
11,000 messages and it worked fine, but I'm curious if you're trying 
with a number that's an order of magnitude larger or something, in which 
case I will try to test that too.

- After you attempt to display the visualization and nothing happens, if 
you open the Temp directory from terminal with this command:

open ${TMPDIR}

Can you find a `com.freron.MailMate.Visualize.csv` file in there?

If you do, is it populated? If you can examine it with your 
data-manipulating tool of choice, does it have the number of rows that 
you'd expect? Are there any visible missing chunks or other obvious 

I think if you don't find the file in there then something is failing 
before the step of trying to launch Safari. Maybe there are some 
problematic emails that stop MailMate. I mostly wrote the 
visualization/plot code, so maybe Benny will have an insights depending 
on what you find.
