 How Realistically Can I Reverse Search an Email Address?  

In the early days, folk chose to submit their email address to email directories. Sites like Bigfoot & Switchboard were very popular. Everybody wanted to be found, to be communicated with...

These days there is no worthwhile, purposeful email directory. Those of the late 90's (ie Bigfoot) still maintain large databases, but the data is very out-of-date.

Your best bet is large sites that you can search, where the person you seek did not expect to have their email address so easily searchable...


However, professional investigators like Email Revealer are the real deal (and they only charge you if they find the info you need...)

Reverse Email Search

 Is the email address valid?  

Unless it comes from an email you recently received, it is best to check if it is valid.

Put in the email address you are searching for:
  • This form does not send an email, it just anonymously asks the mail server if the address is valid.
  • To be doubly sure the catch-all is working, try a nonsense email from the same domain, like when verifying
  • A similar service is here

 eMailTrackerPro - $29.95 

This software is great for finding out about who sent an email to you. eMailTrackerPro features:

  • Determines the IP address of the system an email originated from
  • Determines the country/region of the email source, showing the location on a World map
  • Plug-in integration with MS Outlook (full version) provides one-click email tracking
  • Identifies use of the common 'misdirection' tactic to disguise the sender

eMailTrackerPro analyzes the header of an email you have received, providing the IP address of the machine that sent you the message, which can then be used to track down the sender. The built-in location database tracks emails to a country or region of the World, showing the information on a global map. Optional integration with VisualRoute, Visualware's popular Internet tracing tool, provides additional tracking detail including the city/country location, the network provider being used and network contact information.

 Country Directories 

Once upon a web-time, many websites were devoted to maintaining email addresses of people from their country, because back then most people wanted to be contacted. These days, privacy is a priority...

Most country email directories have died. They have either given up, or transformed into something bigger... Basically, country email directories no longer exist, except for the few listed here.
