Sometimes good search advise comes from unexpected sources.  This 10+ Things column from Tech Republic has some simple but effective advise on finding email addresses.

Two of my favorites are:

  • Check your contacts and own email folders
  • Pick up the phone

A third favorite requires a bit of deduction and trial and error.  This method is probably not good when trying to build a long list but for that one person combining names or initials at domains  might prove worthwhile.

Of course, author Jody Gilbert, also provides some search tools that could prove useful when trying to verify email addresses.  What’s your best method for finding an email address for a needed contact?
