Using Rapportive to Discover Someone's Email Address

Let's say you want to email someone. You know their name and where they work, but you don't have their address. You can guess at it, since for most companies it follows one of a limited set of patterns:

  • First_Last@
  • first@
  • [first initial][last name]@
  • etc.
This is kind of annoying to do in practice: it's slow, it might result in your email arriving in the wrong person's inbox, etc. Using Rapportive, all you have to do is type each guess into the To: field, and Rapportive will immediately look up that email address and give you the results.

I discovered this in the best possible way - by accident. Use it and enjoy!
