When trying to look for some email address some of us are getting really annoyed due to the fact that it’s taking a lot of time and not always comes up with the results we’re expecting it to have.
The main reason for such a failure is that no everyone knows how to do an effective email address search. That’s why the best thing to do is to make an action plan about how to do your actual research.
The best point to start with is to learn what email directories are, what their types are and how to use them. While I’m not going to stop on the first two as they’re a matter of two minute research over the web, but the third one needs an in detailed investigation.
Let’s say firstly that email directories are quite close to the telephone directories while there are also few significant differences. One of the main is that you’ll not only get the data of the recipient but also get lots of info about the address, contact details and of course various things about his connections over the internet. In few words, email directories are designed for a reverse email lookup.
The next thing to do is to find the most relevant email directory service for the reverse email lookup. This might depend on the information needed. The email address search or the search to find somebody’s email are the fields which are always presented in any kind of email directory services, while more complex features such as the lookup for the domain, the general acknowledgement about whether your mail got to the exact recipient are something to look for in places where they provide more advanced services.
