You need to find the email of a stranger. The only thing you know about him is his last name. There are common email templates to help you with your search.
First of all, it should be understood that the spelling of the surname in English letters (transliteration) has several options. For example, the surname ends with "s". It can be written in four ways: "yi", "y", "ii", "ij". Or the surname ends with "yylev". The endings in transliteration can be like this: "ilev", "ylev". Select all possible spellings of the last name of the person you are looking for and write them down separately.
There are common patterns in how to write an email address. Often, the first letter of the person's name is put first. For example, Ivan Petrov will look like i.petrov. It is more difficult if the first letter of a person's name begins with a sound, which is denoted by two English letters. For example, Fedor, in English F is denoted as Ph. Fedor can also be written in the English style of Theodor or Theodore. Then we can get two options for the designation of the first letter of the name: "p" and "t".
There are quite a few options for spelling and separating first and last names in an email address. If you take the sample "Ivan Petrov", you can cite the following templates: petrov @, i.petrov @, i_petrov @, i-petrov @, ipetrov @, ivan.petrov @, ivan_petrov @, ivan-petrov @, ivanpetrov @.
If you know the middle name of the person you want to find, you can try to use that as well in creating an email template. Let's take our example: "Ivan Sergeevich Petrov". As a result, you can get the following templates: i.s.petrov @, is-petrov @, ispetrov @, is_petrov @. You should also consider the age of the person you are looking for. If this person is not young, it is more likely that he uses a name and patronymic in the address.
The last thing you need to do is figure out what exactly stands after the @ sign. If you know the place of work of a person you are interested in, you can look at the website of the company in which he works and what kind of corporate e-mail there is. If you don't know where you work, there are well-known mail servers. After the @ sign, you can safely put mail.ru, gmail.com, yandex.ru, inbox.ru, bk.ru, list.ru. Nowadays, almost every person, in addition to corporate and home mail, has a mailbox on one of these servers. Your letter will surely find its recipient.
