This ferret is badly in need of veterinary attention. It is supposed to find e-mail addresses related to the name and location you enter. I tried eight people whom I e-mail regularly and it failed to come up with a single one. I got plenty of people unknown to me in the results list so I checked the help file. No, I was doing it right. I entered the first name, surname, global location and the domain name. I tried global location, I tried The World and still nothing. 

You will have better success if the name is unusual, it said. OK for reasons I won't go into here I have an e-mail account in the name of Fred Gruntfuttock, now that is unusual. I told it where to find Fred and it still failed. Not so much a ferret, more of a hamster really.
