Use the logic of combinations

The first method I want to show you to help you find an email address is based onuse the logic of combinations to try to guess a person's email address. Clearly, the combinations to be used must take into account the possibilities for registering an email address with the most common Webmail services, such as gmail e Outlook.


gmail

To create a Gmail email address, you can use a combination of letters, USEFULL e points. Here are some of the possible combinations that may help you find a person's email address.


nomecognome@gmail.com

cognomenome@gmail.com

cognome@gmail.com

nome@gmail.com

nomecognomeannodinascita@gmail.com

cognomenomeannodinascita@gmail.com

However, keep in mind that, when registering an email address, you can also choose to use a nickname, and not necessarily your name and / or surname. Just to give some examples: nickname@gmail.com or nicknamevaledinascita@gmail.com.

Outlook

If the email address you're trying to track was created through Microsoft's Webmail service, things could get complicated. At the present time, in fact, the email addresses that can be created have the extension hotmail.com, outlook.com, outlook.com and, in the past, it was possible to register an address also with the extension hotmail.it o live.com.

Additionally, characters such as (-), (_) and the (.); you can therefore understand that, in this specific case, it is more difficult to guess an email address using the logic of combinations. Just to give some examples, the following cases could occur.


Hotmail.com or Hotmail.com

nomecognome@hotmail.com (o .com)

cognomenome@hotmail.com (o .com)

cognome_nome@hotmail.com (o .com)


nome_cognome@hotmail.com (o .com)

nome@hotmail.com (o .com)

cognome@hotmail.com (o .com)

cognome-nome@hotmail.c0m (o .com)

nome-cognome@hotmail.com (o .com)

Outlook.com or Outlook.com

namecognome@outlook.com (the .com)

cognomenome@outlook.com (or .com)

surname_name @ it (or .com)

name_surname @ it (or .com)

name@outlook.com (the .com)

cognome@outlook.com (the .com)

alias-name@outlook.com (the .com)

nickname-name@outlook.com (the .com)

Live.com

nomecognome@live.com

cognomenome@live.com

nome@live.com

cognome@live.com

nome_cognome@live.com

cognome_nome@live.com

nome-cognome@live.com

cognome-nome@live.com

When trying to form the possible combinations, don't forget that you can also register an e-mail address using your own year or date of birth or a nickname.

Per esempio: nomecognomeannodinascita@outlook.com (oppure @outlook.com, @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @hotmail.com @live.com)

Other providers

Gmail and Outlook are just two of the most popular Webmail services; I therefore recommend that you try to guess the email address, using extensions from other popular services such as @ yahoo.com or @ libero.com.

So try to use combinations such as:

namecognome@estensionedelservizio.com (the .com)

cognomenome@estensionedelservizio.com (or .com)

cognome@estensionedelservizio.com (the .com)

name@estensionedelservizio.com (the .com)

cognomeannodinascita@estensionedelservizio.com (the .com)

Services to find an email address

As you can understand, finding a person's email address using purely combination logic isn't that simple at all. It's really hard to guess a person's exact email address on the first try, especially if you don't know them. For this reason, it may be helpful to contact gods Skills fit for purpose.

One of the best on the square is Hunter.io, which allows you to search for people and email addresses in a rather simple way: you indicate the name of the person you want to search for and a company or site that has to do with it and start the search. The free version of Hunter.io allows you to search only 3 email addresses per month (for unregistered users) and up to 5o (for registered users). To break down these limits, you need to subscribe to one of the subscription plans available, starting from 49 euros / month.



To use it, link to this Hunter.io page, write name and surname of the person you are interested in in the first text field and write in the text field after the symbol il name of the company or the website associated with the user in question (perhaps by helping you with the suggestions that appear while typing).

Then start the search by clicking on the button depicting the magnifying glass and, if the service finds any feedback on an email address associated with the person you are looking for, you will see it immediately under the form you used just now.

Check the email address

After identifying the "papabile" email address that could belong to the person of your interest, I suggest you carry out the verification, so that you know if it is actually an existing address or not.


Among the web tools that you can use to verify an email address that you found using the logic of combinations or the service I mentioned in the previous lines, there is the website Verificaemail.com. This is an easy-to-use web service that allows you to verify the correctness of an email address and can help you find out if the address you are trying to guess exists or not.

To use this, open the browser you usually use to browse the Internet (for example Google Chrome o Safari) and linked to the home page of the website in question. From its main page, then click on the button Check now online and, through the next screen, locate the text field used for the search.

In the text field Enter the email address to verify here, type in the email address you remember or tried to find earlier and press the button Submit on your computer keyboard to start the search.


In case the result is positive, you will be shown the thing inside a green color box. You will find the indication The email [email address searched for] is valid which will confirm the actual existence and status of the email address indicated by you. This means that the email address exists and you may have guessed right. However, keep in mind that there may be a margin for error in case of homonymy, which means that the email address exists, but it could belong to someone else.

In the event that the result of the verification is negative, however, the result will be indicated with a red color box and indication The email [email address searched] is NOT valid.

What I advise you to do, in the case of a valid email, is to contact the person via the identified email address. Obviously in the body of the text specify your personal details, specify that you may have sent an email by mistake (writing to the wrong recipient) and wait for a possible reply.
