Whether you want to get back in touch with a long lost friend or you just can't seem to remember Grandma's email address, it does not take much effort to locate someone's email address. The Yahoo "People Search" Website includes several different options for locating anyone's contact information. All you need is someone's first and last name to find an extensive listing of both email addresses and web pages associated with the person.

Step 1

Navigate your web browser to the Yahoo "People Search" website. Click the "First Name/Initial" text box, which is located underneath the "Email Search" heading.

Step 2

Type in the first name or first initial for the person whose email address you need to find. Press "Tab" to move down to the "Last Name" text box.

Step 3

Click "Search" to bring up a list of matching email addresses. Scroll through the list of email addresses and websites associated with the email address until you find the correct information.

Click the "Email Results" link at the top of the page if you don't find the address you are looking for. The link will take you to a third-party web page that allows you to search for email addresses by physical location.


  • The third-party web page for email searching is not a free service. You will need to provide credit card information and pay a fee for their services.


  • Only the "Last Name" field contains required information for the email search. You can leave the "First Name/Initial" field blank, however you will receive many more irrelevant results if you don't provide a complete name.
  • The Yahoo People Search website also has fields for looking up a person's phone number or address, and for performing a reverse phone number search to find the name associated with the number.
