    Unknown Sender

    Hi, I am trying to find out the name of a person who sent me an email using a Hotmail account. Is there any directory with Passport information this address might be listed in?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    I don't think hotmail gives out public profiles.

    Thanks, neil. I didn't think so either, but I was hoping that they might. I know that you can search Yahoo! for profile information. It's no big problem- just my uncle got some weird email and didn't know who sent it. Thanks, again!

    There's a Hotmail Member Directory. I'm not sure if you can find out a name from the email address, though.

    There is a Hotmail member directory, but you can choose whether or not you wish to be listed in it. If this is a sneaky guy you are talking about he probably chose not to have himself in it.

    I thought there was a Member Directory, but I couldn't find it. He figures that it is his weird ex-girlfriend, which I also think it is. When she signed up for the account she probably just used a bunch of fake information. Thanks, again!

    I too received 2 emails today from UnknownSender@UnknownDomain, but where originally from a hotmail account, promoting a domain registry service.

    I just deleted them. I never bother to try to figure out who sends me mail like these. I don't see the point.
