This is a special case of the more general question: "I know someone's
name, and I think he might have an electronic mail address somewhere.
How can I find it?"
There are programs that, given some amount of information about your
associate, can help you track down his or her e-mail address. These tools
include Netfind, X.500, rtfm's usenet-addresses search, and WHOIS. The
more information you know about your associate - name, place of business,
school - the higher the chances are.
For a complete answer to this question, read "FAQ: how to find people's
