Finding other people's email addresses

There are many different places you can look in order to find an email address for someone.

If these techniques fail, or if an address you got through these means or from someone else fails for reasons you don't understand, then postmaster may be able to help. Email postmaster-query giving as much relevant detail as possible, e.g. the name, status and institution of the person you are trying to contact. If you have an address that is failing please also say where you got the address from, and enclose the fail report you get when you try to use it. Please note that, in order to conform to the 1998 Data Protection Act, we can only give out information about our users if they have explicitly authorised us to do so.
