email hacking

P: n/a
Hi there,
I really need some help, everything I've tried, all I've found,
doesn't seem to work.
I have lost an email address which is very important to me. I really
need to contact that person asap.
I'm sure to remember that it begin with "leslie".
Is any of you out there able to run a powerful email extractor, script
or anything else that will provide me a complete list of such
addresses?
Doesn't matter how big it will be, it's really important for me. Above
all, I'm not going to spam anyone, I have no commercial purpose in
mind.
I can also reward people able to help me.
PLEASE contact me at: ak****@gmail.com
TIA

Hi,

Did this leslie-person post under his/her real name in here (or in another
newsgroup)?
If so, go to google and search newsgroups (use the Groups-link) on that
name.

Good luck.

From what data set would you like us to extract the email address?
Specific Newsgroups? The entire internet? Files on your own system?
There are sites that can help you find details on people, but with just
a first name it will probably be impossible to do so.
I have been able to find quite a few people's data via the dutch
people-finder website voelspriet.nl which basically combines search
methods from a number of other searching sites.

If you used to correspond with this person via email, your ISP may be
able to retrieve that data from their archives?

thanks a lot for your kind reply, I really appreciate it, but
unfortunally I haven't been in touch with this person yet and I've
lost the note.
What I really need would be the possibility to harvest email addresses
from email providers like hotmail and yahho beginning with leslie and
then write a program which will scan for the address I'm looking for.
I have few useful information about it.
I know how to write programs but not how to hack on servers. All I've
been able to find on the web was just a waste of time.
If all the email addresses in the world were in a table I would just
need to type this simple query:
select * from email_address where name like 'leslie%@%'
nothing more than that...
My memory says leslie_basel(at)yahoo.de but obviously this address
doesn't exists and I've tried many variations of it. So I'm just sure
about the beginning of the address.
Email tester only check for a precise address, I'd need instead
something which will reply my with a list of address for a given
criteria.
I haven't found yet any evidence on web pages, newsgroup, or people
finder engine.
I really hope for some help.
thanx, a.

Hello needhelp,

1) Do NOT multipost.
I noticed you posted the same message to comp.lang.javascript.
And who knows where else....
IF YOU MUST POST TO MULTIPLE NEWSGROUPS, DO IT IN 1 POST (Crossposting), Not
multiposting!
If you don't know why this is considered annoying, read this:
www.wikipedia.com, look up crossposting and multiposting or doubleposting.

Maybe you don't know this, but the way you post stinks to spam in most
people's eyes...

2) Do you actually expect us to 'hack' yahoo or something like that?
How succesful would that be?
Hacking on of the oldest succesful internetcompanies on Earth? LOL.

3) I can't help to get the paranoid idea you want us to learn you how to
harvest emailadresses, and this leslie thing is just a front.
If so: If you cannot write a script that harvests emailadresses, you'll
never be a succesful spammer (luckily).
If the above is untrue, excuse me.

4) You didn't tell us a lot about this leslie person.
If Leslie ever posted on the internet, chances are Google knows about it.
The only thing you must do is narrow you search by including words that are
likely used by Lesie when he/she posted.
If you are so desperate finding this person, you MUST know some things
he/she wrote about?

Regards,
Erwin Moller

ok, I do apologize for the silly act of multiposting. I just thought
the wrong way.
SORRY FOR THAT, MY FAULT.
Anyway I'm not talking about having someone teaching me how to get on
the Yahoo server or anything like that, I just need to get in contact
to that person and it seems there's no evidence on the web or
newsgroup or any people finder around. Maybe, as many tools search for
newsgroup or web pages on business purposes, some more powerful have
the capability to go directly into the servers' directory and search
by a given criteria.
I also thought that as one can go on port 25 and test for an email
address validation, one can in, almost, the same way, go there and ask
for a list of addresses, nothing that bad.
well, I hope you believe my good intentions, as you say if I were a
spammer wouldn't be asking that and obviously I'm not good enough or
intersted to ever become one.
ok erwin, time to go.
thanks anyway.

(Top posting fixed)

No, you cannot go to Port 25 and test for a valid email address. Many
systems nowadays will just silently trash email to invalid addresses
because spammers use the lack of a bounce message as an indication that
an email address is valid.

And no, you cannot go to port 25 and get a list of valid email
addresses. That would be a spammer's dream.

And if you can't find it in Google or Yahoo, chances are no one else
will be able to find it, either.

P.S. Please don't cross-post.

There is no such way to get a *complete* list. And hacking servers
is immoral and probably illegal. You can try to run extractors
against USENET posts or even files (or unallocated disk space) on
your own system. That's not illegal by itself, and it may be
perfectly moral depending on what you do with the list (spamming
is right out!).
Doesn't matter how big it will be, it's really important for me. Above
all, I'm not going to spam anyone, I have no commercial purpose in

Have you tried writing the administrator at yahoo.de and asking
nicely? He's NOT going to give you a whole list. If you can give him
more clues than the email address, he might contact some of them and
pass on a message for you.

Also try a newsgroup search on Google, especially if you think this
person might have posted there, but it's worth a try even if you
don't know.
>Email tester only check for a precise address, I'd need instead

Spammers have made sure that any such thing that actually works will
be set on fire immediately on discovery.
