What is the accuracy of Tomba Email Finder?

The Email Finder uses the most complete database of public email addresses to find the right contact information.

All the email addresses go through a free email verification before being returned. All the email addresses with the green "Verified" shield have been verified and found deliverable. You can use them safely.

For the email addresses that couldn't be validated, a confidence score taking into account various data points indicates how sure the email address is.

Are the email addresses made up or did you get them somewhere?

Both scenarios can occur.

  • First, the Email Finder will search for a match in our extensive database of email addresses found publicly on the web.
  • If there is no likely match, the Email Finder will use various data points to deduce the most likely email address.

In both cases, the email addresses go through an email verification to validate the accuracy.

Can I locate a list of people's email addresses?

Why doesn't the Email Finder return any result and how can it be fixed?

If the Email Finder can't find the email address, we recommend verifying the following elements:

  • Is the company or organization using the domain name you entered for emails? In some cases, the domain name used for emails is different from the domain name used for the website.
  • Is the person you want to contact still in the company or organization?
  • Has the person's name been misspelled?

One Search request is required for each search that produces an email. The Email Finder is cost-free if it does not yield a result.

With a free account, you can use up to 50 searches/month. If you need more, please check the pricing for more information.
