Help me find my dad's email address?

Can you help me find my dad's work email address? My dad works for Northrop Grumman Corporation's Integrated Systems in Melbourne, Florida.

I have not heard from my dad in a long time and would like to send him an email. I looked at Northrop Grumman's Integrated Systems' webpage to see if it listed employee email addresses, but it did not. I assume the company has a standardized protocol for assigning employee email addresses (i.e., Can you help me figure out that protocol? Can you help me find my dad's email address?

google suggests both [first initial][last name] and [first name][last initial]

Second page of Google results for Northrop Grumman email gives a PDF file where a woman's email is given as [initial][surname] at, so you could try that format.

PS That was in 2003, so j's findings may be more current.

Response by poster: My Google search for "" yielded an email address like this:

That was for a guy that works at the same division as my dad. If anyone has a certain answer, please post!

You could call the main number for Northrop Grumman in Melbourne, FL at (321) 951-5000 and ask for your dad by name, if you're comfortable just talking to him instead of saying hi by e-mail.

If you'd really rather do e-mail, call that number and say that you need to talk to someone in Integrated Systems -- you'll either be transferred or given a phone number to call to reach the division. When you get to a receptionist there, say you need to send an e-mail to your dad (use his name, don't say he's your father) and need his e-mail address. Odds are good the person will give it to you.

One thing to consider is that if there are two people in an organization with the same name, often the naming scheme does something different, like adding a middle initial, or appending a number at the end.

NGC is a big company, so if your Dad has a common name there is at least a decent chance of this happening, so keep that in mind if you start trying combinations.

A friend of mine worked for NG - from what I understand, the company is not necessarily that standardized as far as email is concerned - a lot of the divisions are formerly independent companies that may not even use an address. Plus the company often has many offices in one area - you may be better off attempting to contact him by phone.

Response by poster: Yeah, Calloused_Foot, the last time I was in touch with him (2000?), his email address was not I remember the domain being more complicated and having a reference to his division in it.

Croutonsupafreak, if I can't find the email addresses suggested here don't pan out, I will take your suggestion.

I can second based on some work I did back in September with several IT folks from NG.

Can you call the company and just ask for it? I mean, you'd hate to send an email to the wrong address, "Hi, I'm your kid, remember me?" Could send a lot of panic. LOL

Call them up and tell them you have to send him information and you lost it and need his address.
