    Hello,

    i am a programmer, so coding custom scrapers is no problem for me, as soon as the emails are somewhere visable on the site and no captcha required to view it.
    unfortunately i can't find any Website/Forum/community/Social Network, where the User email is visable on the Profile or any Memberlist.

    Last time i scraped emails was about 8 years ago. It was so easy to find good Sites. There was this old Forum software where all emails were in the memberlist.php file.
    i can still find some of these Forums, but they are all dead.

    Where to scrape fresh emails nowadays?

    Sorry I can't help but had a quick question. Am I overlooking something or is the end goal the obvious- collect email addresses for spam?

    He's looking to code something, not use ScrapeBox. He's looking for a website/source. Didn't you read the post?

    That's right, macdonjo.

    I realised that craigslist still shows some emails.
    I'm coding a scraper for this right now.

    Anyone knows more Sites? Some Social Networks maybe?

    I thought he wanted a solution to his problem. If OP wants to code, then there's obviously no fresh list of emails anywhere what he has to do is release a bot into some targetted niche and hope it'll grab some mailto: hrefs....

    By the way, someone's selling a 16 million email list off FB right on this forum....but OP may prefer coding it .... ;)

    decaptcha is a must if you want to get what you are looking for. all major decaptcha services has easy scripts you can add to your code.

    and if you got it up and running i would recommend to start with google groups.

    good luck.

    I don't think you'll find anything mainstream for something like this. Try looking at new classified websites and social networks.
