What is Email Scrapping?
Email scraping is the act of harvesting emails in bulk from the internet. You can also define it as a way of collecting email addresses in large numbers from the internet for personal use.
Please note that it is not a good approach to scrape peoples emails and begin to mail them incessantly. This is called spamming in the email marketing field. If you do this frequently, your email address will be blacklisted and your emails will land in the spam folder.
Tools for Scraping Emails
There are many tools for scraping emails online but we will list a few of the best ones available.
Hunter.io is a professional tool from Hunter web services. It helps you to search for email addresses within a domain name. You can type in a domain name in the Hunter.io search bar and it will bring up the email addresses associated with the domain name you provided. The company behind hunter also have other email tools and addons.
Snov.io is a multipurpose email tool. It can be used to find an email address, track email addresses and a host of other things. With Snov, you can find emails by domain name, company name, names of persons and through a boolean search.

This tool does not really extract emails from the web. It is more like an email separator tool. You can paste thousands of text into it and Lite14 will remove other text and leave only the email addresses. The emails can be separated with commas, colons, pipe (|), or whatever you want.
Sky extractor is computer software that can help you extract emails from various sources. Once you enter your specified keyword, hit the search button and Sky extractor will scan search engines of your choosing to extract email addresses that have been mentioned next to the keyword you entered earlier. Although this software can be downloaded to your computer as opposed to others, you will need an internet connection to use this software.
Sky email extractor comes at a cost of 39.92$ per lifetime license. You can try the free version before going all in to buy the premium.
Atompark email extractor is another email extractor software that works only on a computer. For now, there is no web version for it. This software works when you input a domain name or keywords into it. After a search is done, the tool displays the names and emails on the results dashboard.
You have to cough out 89.9$ for a single license of this software. For more licenses, you get them at a discounted price.
