    Did you do a search for this info here? You might be surprised at what you might find.

    You can't extract emails from gumtree. They don't list them on the site.

    Scrape 'n' rape is illegal btw.

    Yep, true, after all this is BHW.

    If you do decide to go down this route, a couple of problems you're likely to face:
    1. Someone will report you.
    2. More importantly, low conversion rate (particularly if it's untargeted).

    well my plan is to just fire the odd few emails around not for direct leads or anything but just to offer a few cheap laptops for xmas from my amazon store. ill add a unsubscribe button too. basicly ill make it look like they subscribed to a listing at some point

    Gumtree does not display e-mail addresses. Besides, when you write to someone via Gumtree, the mail goes through Gumtrees' system. Same when you reply.

    From Gumtree e-mails:

    "For your safety, email addresses are now masked by Gumtree. Replying to this email will send your reply via Gumtree for your protection. Find out more"

    I have no idea about gumtree as I personally have never even been to the site, much less scrape emails. However, to answer your questions since no one here really did; power leads pro has gumtree functionality. Now with what some of the above posters have said you probably still won't be able to use it on gumtree and actually get results unless there is emails in the content of the pages.
