How to find somebody's email address from google group

Discussion in 'Virus Information' started by yourskarthikeyan, Feb 21, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    I have sent a mail to google group. Is it possible to find out
    individual email addresses in that group.?

    Note: I am not a member of that google group

  2. By "mail" do you mean a "post" through a google groups interface to
    usenet?

    Depends, yours would be easy whereas mine would be more difficult. Some
    may be impossible.

    Posting with a real address is frowned upon because it feeds the worms
    (and the spammers). My real e-mail address would not be harvested from
    the headers of my post nor from the body of a reply to my post as yours
    (if that is real) appears to avail below.

    You don't send e-mail to Google Groups. You submit posts to them.
    E-mail uses a completely different communications protocol.
    Did you look at their post to see if they gave out an e-mail address?
    Does it look like a valid e-mail address? Or is it a bogus one? Or
    did they munge it? No one can tell without seeing an exhibit of a
    particular post to which you refer but don't mention.
    There are private and public Google Groups. Private Google Groups are
    known only to Google's server. They are not distributed via NNTP
    (Network News Transfer Protocol) to other newsgroups servers. They are
    more like forums. Public Google Groups are peered from and to other
    NNTP servers and are part of Usenet (aka newsgroups).

    Since you didn't identify "that Google Group", no one knows which one
    you are asking about. If it is a private Google Group, you might have
    to ask permission to join it.
