5 Best Ways to Find Someone’s Email Address

Finding somebody’s email address can be
difficult because unlike phone numbers and physical addresses, there’s not a
phonebook-like database of email addresses. However, there are a few tips you
can employ that will make your email-finding process easier.

Find an Email
Address With a Search Engine

Google or another search engine is a great place for finding all sorts of information, and if the tool you use has advanced searching capabilities, finding an email address can be easy.

When you use a search engine to find someone’s
email address, you’re able to quickly sift through a huge database of websites
at once. This is the best way to find anybody’s email address, so it should be
your very first method.

However, it’d be next to impossible to move
through all those websites by hand to find each email address, and then filter
through all those addresses to find the one you’re after. It’s important, then,
to use any tools available to you to narrow down the results.

With Google, for example, you can use search
operators to get really specific about the person you’re looking for. Here’s
one example if you were looking for Jerry Carl’s Gmail address:

“@gmail.com”
AND “Jerry Carl”

Of course, adding any other relevant
information might be helpful. If you know where this person works or lives, or
anything else about him or her that might show up alongside his email address
on an online profile of him, use it here.

Here are some other examples of using Google
to find anybody’s email address:

  • “@yahoo.com” AND “new york” AND “Pat Neises”
  • “@aol.com” OR “@hotmail.com” “Colorado State University” AND
    “Elizabeth”

If you’re sure which email provider they use —
whether it’s Outlook.com, Gmail.com, Yahoo.com, etc. — you can try each of them
separately or with the OR option like
shown above.

Search Their
Website for Email Addresses

Does this person have their own website? Maybe
they go to a specific school and you suspect that their email address is posted
somewhere on the school’s website. There are a few ways to can narrow down your
email search to just one particular website.

The first is to use a search engine or the
website’s search function. For instance, head over to Google and enter site:example.com “@gmail.com” AND “Mary” to
help find Mary’s Gmail account. This type of search is limited to example.com only, so you can change it
to whatever website their address might be listed on.

Another way to gather email addresses from a website is with an email scraper like VoilaNorbert. Just enter the person’s first and last name along with the website URL to get a list of matching email addresses. You get 50 successful searches for free.

Guess the Email
Address

Sure, you may have already thought about doing
this, but there are a few tips you should know that can help you guess someone’s
email address.

If you already know their username (the part
before @), go ahead and try all the domains you can think of. For example, if
the person’s username is texas4life1991,
try adding @gmail.com, @outlook.com,
@hotmail.com, @aol.com, @yahoo.com
, etc., until one works.

However, if you’re not so lucky to know their
username, start by guessing things you know about them, such as their birthdate
or graduation date. Lots of people like to use those facts in their username,
but if not, maybe it’s just as simple as their first and last name.

Here are some examples if we consider the
person’s name to be Christina Rodriguez.

Also consider small changes like underscores
or hyphens. The username might instead be christina.rodriguez,
rodriguezchristina, or christina_rodriguez.

If this person goes to your school or a university that you know the domain for, try something simple like their name with the school’s address for the domain.

For instance, if Christina goes to school at Colorado State University (colostate.edu), her email address probably ends with @colostate.edu. In this case, you could try all the username tips from above but end the address with this domain instead of a public one like Gmail or Yahoo.

Tip:
Schools often use the first letter of the first name, such as crodriguez, but
might sometimes shorten the last name, too. You might try chrrod or
chr.rodriguez.

If you’re having troubles coming up with possible usernames, plug the person’s name into Email Permutator+ and have it generate a bunch of possible addresses.

Find Email
Addresses With Pipl

Pipl is a “people search” tool that will gather all the information it finds on someone into one page, for free. All you have to do is make a free user account to see the results.

This tool might show you someone’s email
address but will most likely reveal their online presence instead, which you can
then use to do further research. Once you’ve landed on somebody’s social media
profile, for example, you can most likely email them there or find their email
address posted publicly on their page.

All you need to know about someone to use Pipl
is their name, username, or phone number. A location will be much more helpful,
but it’s not required. After performing the search, the results can be filtered
by location and age.

Find a Past Email
That Includes Their Address

Don’t forget not to overlook the obvious: open
an email they’ve already sent you. If you’re trying to find someone’s email
address so that you can send them a message, but you don’t have them in your
contact list, do a quick search through all your emails for a message from the
person. In the email is a record of their email address.

Most email providers have a large search tool at the top of the page where you can enter details about the message you’re looking for, like the subject, details in the recipient’s email signature, their name, etc. Enter anything you know about the person and see if an old message appears.

When you open the email, look for the details
area where you can see when the email arrived, who it was sent to, and who sent
it. The “from” address is what you’re looking for.

Watch Hand-Picked YouTube Videos Nonstop From This Award-winning App

YouTube was created in February 2005 and it is now the second most visited website in the world. As disclosed by YouTube, it has over 1.9 billion logged-in users visiting YouTube each month and people watch over a billion hours of video every day.

Among them, some users like to sit back and watch YouTube videos one after another without the need to press a button. That’s where YouTube’s autoplay feature comes in and chooses the next related video to play automatically following your viewing history.

If the videos that are selected by the autoplay feature do not regularly suit your interests, then give this award-winning app Neverthink a try. With this app, never think or wonder what to watch; it instantly finds YouTube videos that are hand-picked by a team of curators every day in over 45 channels, which you can select and add to the app.

Neverthink won the 2019’s Google Play Award in the category of Best Living Room Experience. It is available on Android and iOS platforms, as well as accessible from a web browser, making it easier to share any of the YouTube videos from Neverthink with those without the mobile app.  Read More

Azulle Lynk Review: This Remote Crams in a Full Mouse and Keyboard Surprisingly Well

The Lynk is a super-compact way to use both mouse and keyboard controls on a PC.
Azulle

Living room PCs are the most flexible, powerful way to watch stuff on your TV, but they generally need a bulky mouse and keyboard to be operated effectively. You could try to shrink a regular keyboard and mouse down, or power up a remote to do the same thing. Azulle’s Lynk remote opts for the latter.

Azulle also sells a series of mini PCs and stick PCs that run full versions of Windows, which the Lynk is designed to complement. These computers are better suited to enterprise customers than anything else—general consumers will be better going with something like a Chromecast or Fire TV for video, or a full desktop for gaming.

But if you do have a full PC or Mac that you want to only occasionally control, and you can’t stand the thought of a full-sized mouse and keyboard sullying your pristine coffee table, it gets the job done.

I wouldn’t say that using the Lynk for conventional control of a full PC is easy. But it does perform admirably in a tiny package, and for just $30 it’s well worth looking into if you’re already invested in a home theater PC.

You Got Your Remote in My Mouse

The Lynk uses an “air mouse” setup for mouse control, a rarely-seen niche of the mouse world. An air mouse lets you move the remote around with your hand, waving it in a vaguely conductor-ish fashion as the mouse cursor moves around the screen. If you’ve ever used a Nintendo Wii with its infrared remotes and their on-screen cursors, it feels a bit like that.

The main "mouse" side of the Lynk holds mouse controls, a D-pad, and several Windows functions.

This setup means you don’t need a flat surface or even a touchpad to get basic mouse functionality. It’s less than intuitive, but the Lynk compares well with the other air mice I’ve (briefly) tried. For getting around a few basic points of a full Windows interface, it’s serviceable.

And for a more fullscreen setup, like apps for Netflix, Hulu, or Plex, the “remote” side of the device includes a full D-pad for basic controls. It works as well as any set top box remote, though there is a bit of a learning curve to find which apps can be used in “browsing” mode and which require finer mouse control. A handy “Mouse on/off” button will keep the cursor locked in place if you’re doing other things.

The Lynk is similar in size to other TV and set-top box remotes, though it's a bit thicker.

Other buttons on the “mouse” side of the remote include generic media controls for play/pause and volume, a “home” button for apps that support it, and shortcuts to core Windows functions. These include the Windows button itself, a mic button for Cortana, power and sleep buttons that work correctly in Windows, and (extremely handy) a shortcut button for the on-screen keyboard. This is nice for quickly hitting the Enter key without needing to flip over the remote and enter keyboard mode. I only wish there was a quick way to switch apps—a dedicated alt-tab button would be ideal.

You Got Your Keyboard in My Remote

Flip the Lynk around, and you get a 51-key keyboard that will look familiar to anyone who had a slider phone in the mid 2000s. That’s not an insult, by way. Plenty of users still miss dedicated, physical keys on their mobile devices.
