Is there any away to find out someones IP address by just knowing there Email address only, and if so, how do you go about doing it?

I'm trying to find out this persons IP address ([email protected])

Thanks for any help guys!! :)

Not by using a lookup.

Given that you have the individual's email address, send him an email. If he responds, there's a good chance his IP address will be in the message header.

Your next route would be to Google his email address, name, and/or alias. There might be clues among the search results. (Similar to the automated system that Microsoft developed for the RCMP.)

You can create some script that defines IP and put link to that script in message text then send it to [email protected]. If recipient opens that link, you will definitely will know IP

You can send e-mail to that particular address or your can visit this website and get the whois details but this is working for particular domain name. I think not
