Don’t know how to find someone’s email address?

Don’t worry. We’ve all been there: you know who you want to contact — now if only you could find their email address.

In this article, I am going to discuss in detail the top 10 ways by which you can find someone’s email address.

Here is the list of 10 Email discovery Methods

  1. Email Permutator+ 
  2. LinkedIn Sales Navigator 
  3. Advanced Twitter Search 
  4. Search in DuckDuckGo
  5. Reach out for an email address on Social Media

  8. Clearbit Connect
  9. Hunter

Email Permutator+

You can create a list of potential email addresses with the help of this tool. The majority of the email addresses follow one of several formats. If you know the first name, last name, and domain of your potential lead, then you can use the Email Permutator+ tool to get a list of email addresses. 

Generally, the email addresses use [email protected] format. The most common formats for an email address are:

It can be a very time-consuming task if you do it manually. This is where Email Permutator+ comes to the rescue. It automatically creates a list of possible email addresses. You just have to fill in the fields. 

These tools will get you a list of possible email addresses in seconds. From there, you need to check the suggestions.

LinkedIn Sales Navigator

Use LinkedIn sales navigator to export email addresses to Google contacts. That’s where the LinkedIn sales navigator extension for Chrome comes in handy.

Install its Google chrome extension and click on the “Compose” button, and paste all the email permutations into the “To” field. Move the cursor over the email address one by one and observe.

Gmail will show you if the email address is associated with a Google profile, while the LinkedIn Sales Navigator extension will reveal if this email address belongs to a LinkedIn account.

Advanced Twitter Search

The (at) (dot) Approach To Finding Any Email

People get asked for their email on Twitter all the time. You can use Twitter’s advanced search to find the last time your contact responded to such a request:

  1. Search for the terms (at) (dot) in “All these words” under the ‘Words” section
  2. Enter their Twitter handle in “From these accounts” under the “People” section

Pro tip: Don’t waste your time searching for the word “email.” You’ll just end up combing through a long list of tweets on the topic of email, and not their actual email address. Find emails in seconds using Advanced Twitter Search.

Search in DuckDuckGo

This trick won’t work with Google: they’re using the “@” symbol for social tags. It used to work with Bing, but that’s no longer the case.

But hey! There are more search engines!

Run an exact match search for “@domainname.com” at DuckDuckGo, and it will reveal email addresses related to this domain (if they are publicly available). You can add the name of your prospect to the search.

Reach out for an email address on Social Media

Search by first name, last name, and company domain. Norbert pings the mail host to confirm the correct email address, giving you 50 free searches per month. 

While simple to use you don’t need to install a plugin Norbert does not check for catchall addresses, and it limits the number of queries users can conduct (SMTP servers could block the service if pinged too frequently). In our own unscientific test, Norbert was able to correctly identify three out of five email addresses.
