The question of how to find someone's email address is one that is asked very
frequently.  You can find numerous techniques in the "finding-addresses"
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) list.  From the contents of that document,
you should be able to find information about how to locate the e-mail address
you are seeking.

Here are some ways of obtaining a copy of the FAQ:

   1. If you have a WWW browser, open the following document:


   2. Check back-articles in one of the following newsgroups:
      news.answers, comp.answers, comp.mail.misc, news.newusers.questions.
      Look for the subject line "FAQ: How to find people's E-mail addresses".

   3. If you have anonymous FTP access, connect to rtfm.mit.edu
      []. Go to the directory /pub/usenet/news.answers.
      There you will find the file "finding-addresses".
      (FTP is a a way of copying files between networked computers. If you
      need help in using or getting started with FTP, send e-mail to
      mail-server at rtfm.mit.edu with the line

         send usenet/news.answers/ftp-list/faq

      in the body of the e-mail message.)

   4. There are other sites which also carry news.answers postings. The
      article "Introduction to the news.answers newsgroup" carries a
      list of these sites; the article is posted regularly to news.answers.

   5. If you don't have FTP, send mail to mail-server at rtfm.mit.edu
      with the following line in the body of the message:

       send usenet/comp.answers/finding-addresses
