How do I locate a recipient of an email I sent in error with all my I.D. information?

Is Inspector Clouseau available? :)

I scanned in and attached IRS info, retirement info, and SSI info to a Mortgage agent I've
been working with.

I typed in his email address (incorrectly) and sent the email!!!

Usually it would come back to me latter with the note from the "Mail Administrator" as it could not be delivered.

I then sent another email to the same incorrect address inquiring if they were "friend or foe?". No response.

My ISP tech supervisor claimed that there was NO WAY to find out who the person was even though
I could give him the exact wrong address I had used. :)

I then joined LifeLock ID protection the same evening. :)

But I would like to know who this is... in the event he/she harbors any larceny in their cardiac area.

Here is the only thing that you can do.

When you look at an email address, there are two important parts. username@host.com

The only thing that you can legally do is contact the HOST and ask them if they have someone with that USERNAME.

Generally you can go to www.HOST.com and find a "contact us" form on their website. From there you can ask your question.

I followed your suggestions and found them
to be very helpful.

www.HOST.com referred me to a web site that confirms working
email address':

The result: Not valid email

"Inspector Clouseau " to the rescue.

Thanks for the right answer! :)
