Is there a way of finding out people's e-mail addresses who live in a certain part of England?

If so, how do they do it?

Why would you want peoples email addresses?

As for using somebody elses email address, I have just banned a user from our centres because they accessed others email addresses and violated their privacy.

So in answer to your question: it is possible.

No, as email addresses can be either static or floating (Hotmail etc) and are not area-specific. To do this you would need access to all the ISPs records and the Data Protection Act would have apoplexy. Getting occupants and house addresses is easy - voters register :-))

I have a strange feeling that the spooks at GCHQ/Langley,Virginia may be able to do this *cough* Echelon *cough* and with all their Crays and ultra-geeky programmers they want talking about if they can't. ;-))
