How to Find an Email Address on MySpace

By Greg Lindberg

Are you looking for the most simple way to find a user's email on MySpace? The following article will take you through some steps in finding email addresses on MySpace. You must keep in mind that some users make their email addresses private from non-friends, and sometimes even their added friends. If you really need the user's email address for a specific reason, the simplest way, of course, is to message the user with your MySpace account to ask them for their address.

Step 1

The first thing that you will need to do before you can find email addresses on MySpace, is to go to "" and set up an account. If you already have an account with MySpace, then log in with your email and password. If you don't have a MySpace account, click on the "Sign Up" option on the top, right-hand corner. Simply follow all the steps by entering in the information asked for and then click on the "Sign Up" button at the bottom of the page. You now have your own MySpace account that you can specialize with a plethora of features, and you are also now ready to be able to search for email addresses.

Step 2

Now that you're signed in, the next thing you will want to do is find your friends or those whose emails you wish to obtain. This step also works if you already have an email of a friend and you are just looking to find their MySpace page. First, scroll over the "Friends" option on the top tool bar. Scroll down and click on the "Find Friends" option. This page will give you several options for finding friends. You can find friends by using your email address book, and you can also search for friends by their email address or name. Since you're looking for email addresses, you're easiest way to find a friend on this page would be to search by their name.

Step 3

If Step 2 doesn't find you the person or people that you were looking for, then this alternative option might be even more helpful. Scroll over the "Friends" option on the top tool bar. Scroll down and click on the "Browse People" option. On this page you can set browsing criteria, which is most helpful as you are given the option of looking through results of people in your area. The advanced options in the "Set Browse Criteria" section may be even more helpful for you to narrow down your search. After you have the friend or friends you were looking for, you will need to add them as a friend. It is doubtful that their email will be made public without being a friend. Once accepted as a friend you can message a friend to ask them if they wouldn't mind sharing their email with you.

Step 4

A couple of other alternative that you can try, include trying to find more friends by inviting them to MySpace through your email contacts. Go to the "Friends" option on the top tool bar, and scroll down to click on the "Invite Friends" option. On this page you can find and invite friends by using their email addresses, which will automatically send them an invitation email. Another option that you can use if you are still having problems finding someone is to do a search through the search engine at the top of the page. You can use the drop-down menu beside the search function to specify the search with either "People" or "MySpace."

Step 5

If you are still having problems finding friends after all of those steps and options, you can try searching through forums, top blogs, and schools. These options are located in the "More" option of the top tool bar. With these options you can also find people you may not know as well as close friends. Also, please keep in mind that your best and safest bet at purposefully obtaining one's email is by messaging them. If you are trying to contact a company or public relations of a band, you can always trying emailing the band to ask for a contact email.
