Find Email Addresses – 60+ Tools and Tips to Find Someone’s Email

60+ Tools and Tips to Find Email Addresses via @sbizideasblog

In business, finding email addresses is often an important first step in building relationships or getting sales leads. Email outreach can be used for any of the following:

  1. Content Promotion
  2. Media Coverage
  3. Increasing Sales
  4. Growing Your Network of High Value Contacts

However, finding email addresses can be a challenge. Some people don’t have their direct emails listed and it can also be time consuming to find all the email addresses that you need.

Luckily, people have created a lot of tools and resources that can help you more easily find email addresses. I’ve used some of these tools myself for outreach campaigns that resulted in thousands of social shares to some of my blog posts and to find contact info for potential sales contacts.

Although finding contact info isn’t hard, people should use this information responsibly by making sure their message is relevant to the recipient, personalized and well targeted. Forming mutually beneficial relationships is what makes outreach efforts worthwhile.

This guide delves into numerous ways that you can effectively find email addresses of people you may want to contact.

Email Finding Tools (1-14)

My favorite way to find email addresses that aren’t publically listed is with email finding tools. These tools make it easy to either verify someone’s email if you guess it or some tools will even find email addresses for you.

1. Rapportive

Rapportive is a browser add-on that integrates with Gmail that was acquired by LinkedIn. This add-on can be useful for finding email addresses, especially if you are well connected on LinkedIn.


Most company email addresses follow similar naming conventions. For example, many emails will use the following formats:






With Rapportive, you can guess a person’s email and then copy and paste each email into Gmail to see if any information is connected with that email address. Once you find an email that turns up info, then you know you have a valid email address.

Rob Ousbey at Distilled created a free spreadsheet to generate all the email combinations that are commonly used for company email addresses. You can then copy and paste these addresses into Gmail and click on each one until Rapportive finds an email with info connected to it.


I also found this nifty online tool that was created from Rob’s spreadsheet. Just enter the name and domain info here and it will provide all the permutations without having to use a spreadsheet. You can then copy and paste it as needed:



2. Mailtester.com

If Rapportive doesn’t work, then try out MailTester.com. This tool can often tell you if an email address exists on a server.

Simply enter your best guess at the person’s email address. If the email is valid, then it will display a message saying that the email was found on the server. If not, then you will get a not valid message instead.

Twitter Tools (15-17)

People often get asked for their email address on Twitter and sometimes, they will reveal their address publically by tweeting it to the other person. You can sometimes find people’s email addresses by using a Twitter tool to search through their tweet history.


1. Advanced Twitter Search

Twitter allows you to search through someone’s tweet history with their Advanced Twitter search feature. Just enter the Twitter username of the person who’s email you want to find under “From these accounts” and then search for phrases like “email” or “dot com”.

Then scroll through the tweets until you find an email address. This approach can work if the person has tweeted his email address to someone else.

Email Database (27-31)

There are many businesses that compile and sell lists of email addresses or allow people to get access to their lists for a fee. These databases are often used to quickly generate new sales leads.

Here are a few prominent sources for purchasing email lists:

Dun & Bradstreet has been around since the 1800’s and has 240 million business records and is a popular source for new sales leads.

Journalists (41-50)

Reaching out to journalists can be important if you want to get mainstream media exposure for your business or get quoted as an expert source. According to a PR survey, 93% or journalists prefer to receive pitches by email.

Before emailing a journalist, you should also become familiar with the types of stories they cover. Here are a few ways you can get in touch with journalists.


1. Freelance Journalist Directory by DWPub

Sometimes, if you can’t find a journalist’s email address, you can call someone that they interviewed and ask them.


7. Society of Professional Journalists Free Directory


The Society of Professional Journalists maintains a free directory where freelance journalists can enter their information.


8. On the Journalist’s personal blog

Many journalists have personal blogs, so sometimes you can contact them through the contact page on their own blog.


9. On the media site they write for

Some media sites will display the contact information of their journalists on their website. Check the About Us pages, journalist bio page and contact pages.


10. Hey Press

Find Emails from Websites (51-56)

A lot of times you can find a person’s contact info on their own site. Here are a few places to look.


1. About page

The about page is a good place to look for a person’s email address. Sometimes, companies have their leadership team listed on the about page and email addresses are sometimes included.


2. Author page or profile

If the website has a blog, sometimes authors will list their email on the author profile page. Just go to one of their blog posts and click on the link to the author’s name (if available) to view their author page.


3. Contact page

The most obvious place to look for a contact email is the contact page. Note that if it is an organization with multiple people, a general contact like “info” or “support” might not be the best email address to reach the person directly, in which case you may want to try another tool or method.


4. Privacy Policy page

Some web hosts require that an email address be listed on the privacy policy page, so this can be a good place to look for contact info if you can’t find a good email address on other pages on the site.


5. Press Kit PDF

Press kits are often available in PDF format on websites for larger organizations and these press kits will often have a media contact listed on it.


6. Social Media Profiles

Many sites will link out to their social media profiles, so a quick visit to someone’s social media profile could reveal their email address, if they chose to put their email on their social profile.

-Back to top

Other (57-69)

Still can’t find the email you’re looking for? Here are some more ideas that are worth trying.


1. Google It

Sometimes a simple Google search can turn up someone’s email address. Just try searching for the person’s name and “email address” or “contact info”.


2. Call and ask (them or someone that knows them)

If you don’t know someone’s email, you can try to call someone that knows them and ask. This technique is especially useful for finding email contacts for people at large companies.


3. Website Whois lookup

People are required to provide contact information when registering their website, so a whois lookup can sometimes turn up their email address. There are plenty of websites that provide whois lookup – just enter “whois lookup” in a search engine to find one.


4. Slideshare, on their slidedecks

Sometimes people will provide their contact information on the last slide of a presentation. If these presentations get uploaded to Slideshare, you can use this source to find someone’s email.


5. Trade Shows (sometimes listed on website and attend to get business cards)

Retailers and other service providers sometimes go to trade shows and sometimes their contact information is listed on the trade show website. If you are attending the trade show live, you can collect business cards from people you want to reach out to later.


6. Industry Associations (sometimes listed on website)

Industry associations often have websites that list their members and sometimes these websites provide contact information including email addresses. Industry association websites can be a good place to generate a lot of leads at once.


7. LinkedIn Profile

Many people will display their email address publically on their LinkedIn profile. Sometimes an email address is required to connect with someone, so displaying this information on the profile makes it easy for people to connect with them.


8. Export LinkedIn contacts

If you want to get email addresses from some of your current LinkedIn contacts, you can export your LinkedIn contacts. This will create a spreadsheet where you can easily search and find the email addresses you are looking for.


9. Facebook pages

Businesses and public figures will sometimes display their email address on their Facebook pages.


10. Facebook profile

Some people will display their email addresses on their Facebook profile page.


11. Ask Them

If you have a good reason to contact someone, then sometimes you can ask the person directly for their email address.


12. Ask someone that knows them

If you know someone that knows the person you are trying to get in touch with, you can sometimes ask them for their email address.


13. Hire someone to look it up (UpWork or MTurk)

Finding a lot of email addresses can be tedious and time consuming, so you can hire someone on UpWork or MTurk to look up the email addresses for you if you have the budget for outsourcing.



To wrap it up, finding email addresses doesn’t have to be hard. These tools are a great way to find emails and initiate conversations with valuable contacts to expand your network, promote your brand or increase sales.

  6. Hi Brian,
    While it is good to know about these tools for finding emails it is even better to remind users that applying these tools should not be an opportunity to spam email owners! I hate SPAM, and I am sure many people do.
    These tools are most welcomed if the business or individual utilize them for the benefit of the customers!
    I left this comment in kingged.com where this post was shared.

    • Brian Lang says:

      Agreed – people using these tools need to customize their messages and take a little time to research their prospects. Sending out untargeted emails won’t get good results anyways and is a waste of time.

  7. Hello Brian, Wowsy, I had NO Idea that you could find email addresses with just a name and all these sites CRAZY! I am going to go over to twitter and play around with the Advanced Twitter search feature, this could be interesting HUH?

    And talk about Crazy if this Authority Spy was Free I would be all over this too. Love free tools. HEHE

    Great share my friend, book marking for future reference..
    Thanks Chery :))

  8. Hi Brian,

    What an education I go reading this Blog post.

    I had no idea about how people acquired Email Ids when they needed them.

    While there are a definite % of people who will abuse these tools and processes, there is also a large % of people who will not.

    I hate SPAM just as much as the other person. I seem powerless to reduce the number of SPAM email I get. I’ve been on the Internet for as long as about 30years.

    I’ve occasionally wanted to lay my hands on someone’s Email Id and now I know how to try and do this. I spent some time reading this content carefully, and I’ve definitely has value added to me.

    Thanks so much for sharing Brian.

    I came to your site via a link on Kingged.com.

    • Brian Lang says:

      Thanks, Ivan! To reduce spam, you can use an email that doesn’t follow naming conventions or use an anonymous Gmail account. Most likely, you need to install a script to hide your email from bots on your website – that’s where a lot of web spam comes from.

  9. This is a very lovely post Brian,
    Email outreach is indeed one of the best ways to promote a blog post and if done well, can give you lots of exposure and leads.

    However, what people usually consider the most difficult and time consuming task when it comes to carrying out outreach is how and where to source of the email addresses that you’ll use.

    But once you’ve gotten your hand to tools like this, the whole process will become more and less easier for you.

    Will check out these tools immediately.

    Thanks for sharing

  10. Hey Brian,

    Thanks for sharing! Have a great week!

  11. Looking for contact information when someone has not made it readily available can be a real challenge, but getting in contact with people who can benefit your success is crucial to success. I really like this article and the ways that you have pointed out to help find someone’s contact information. There are alot of ways to get someone’s information listed here, I will have to refer back to this post from time to time.

    Thank you for the extensive list! I wanted to share with you a new free tool to include to your list called Sherlock. It uses Rapportive to provide validated LinkedIn addresses.

  30. Thank you, Brian, for this great huge list of services. It’s really helpful. You can add also https://getprospect.io to it, it’s also awesome service to find business email address from Linkedin.

  31. You should really check out Nymeria, https://www.nymeria.io

    It beats all of those email finders. Worth a shot!

  32. Hey Brian, very helpful and insightful post! I’d suggest taking a look at ContactOut as well. It works as a Chrome extension, which gives you 3x more data than other tools. You can check it out here: contactout.com.

    It’s currently being used by roughly 30% of Fortune500 companies, particularly for recruitment. Hope this helps!

  33. Hi Brian, This is one of the best post regarding email finding, email verifying and related all the tools. I am using most of the tools you mentioned in this post and I got some new. Thanks a lot for this helpful post for me as I am a freelancer on Upwork working with Email Lead Generation, Email List Building, Contact Sourcer since 2009.

  34. Here’s another great free tool for extracting email addresses: automatethatshit.com/lab/extract-email-addresses-from-files from websites and documents. The tool works with all browsers. Hope this is helpful!

  35. Its a shame LinkedIn chased and closed down Nymeria, bought rapportive, harassed anymailfinder and they are after many others. Still using Rapportive and snov.io hope they will stay around.

  36. eMail Finder is an other great tool to discover email IDs – https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/email-finder/dbmjjcmdhfjbgkgigdndfnfddminlpgb

  37. Brian thanks for sharing the list of email address finder tools, I would like to add one more tool in the list, it finds anyone email addresses from the internet. All you need to just type in name and company of the person egrabber.com/emailprospector/ , check it out.

  41. Hi Brian! You gave us here one very exhaustive list! In addition to the above my team also uses SignalHire ( signalhire.com ), which was recently distinguished by Forbes as a great sourcing tool (that is where we discovered it). With its help we receive both(!) work/personal verified emails (gmail, hotmail, yahoo) from LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, GitHub, MeetUp, and Google+. Also it helps to track email opens and replies which is important for coldmailing. Thanks again)) Cheers)

  42. Very informative post!! I have used few prospecting and Lead generation tools like AeroLeads, rainClutch , Rapportive and it’s really helped me a lot to increase my business reach!
