The steps to take to find out what address people see when you email them depend on the service or email program you use, so look for yours below – or use the general instructions up front. You will find the email address to hand out to people or use for subscribing to newsletters in no time. We're going to make the assumption your email is already set up and working. Note: If you need to change the NAME associated with your email address, read How to Change Your Email Name.

General Instructions: What Is My Email Address?

To identify your email address in almost any email program or service, open the program or service and:

  1. Start a new email message.
  2. Look for a line that begins with From:.
    If you do see a From line, it contains your email address.

    Note: Many email programs and services let you send email from more than one address. If more than one email address is configured for sending, they will usually show up as menu choices in the From: line when you compose an email.
    All the email addresses listed are yours; you can use any of them.

Don't see a From: line? Want your address in a form that you can copy and paste quickly? No worries! Look further down with your email service, or use the next, fail-safe method.

These Steps Always Work: How Can I Get My Email Address So I Can Copy It?

The best way to find out what the emails you send look like is, of course, to send yourself an email.

If only you knew… your email address.

Well, you do not need to know your address to do that. Send an email to an email echo service, and it will be sent right back to you. That way, you can find out exactly what it is you send – and from which address.

Do not worry: echo services, typically run by universities, are safe to use.

Known services will not store your message or your email address, and they will not sell or otherwise use it.

We suggest you use that offered by the Technical University of Berlin, Germany.

So, to find out what your email address is and get it in a manner that you can conveniently select, copy and paste it for further use using TU Berlin Echo:

  1. Start a new email message in your email program or service.
  2. Enter echo@tu-berlin.de in the To: field.
  3. Press Send.
  4. Wait for and open the email from TU Berlin Echo.
  5. Find your email address in the first line from the top that starts with From: (under "This is a copy of your message, including all the headers.").

    Technical Note: The very first line will start with From (note the missing colon!); it will usually contain your email address as well, but it can differ from the one under From: under certain circumstances. Do stick with the From: address.
    Technically, the From address is the email address your program or service uses as the Sender during SMTP email delivery.

TU Berlin Echo is not working for you? You can try another email testing echo service that will bounce an email back to your inbox.
