    Default Dmitry -e switch help

    While i am trying this tool to find possible emails on my own domain its coming up with no results

    Code:
    root@bt:/usr/local/bin# dmitry -e security-need.com

    "There be some deep magic going on"
    
    HostIP:66.98.145.18
    HostName:security-need.com
    
    Gathered E-Mail information for security-need.com
    ---------------------------------
    Searching Google.com:80...
    Searching Altavista.com:80...
    Found 0 E-Mail(s) for host security-need.com, Searched 0 pages containing 0 results
    
    All scans completed, exiting

    & when i am trying this tool on gmail.com its coming up with only 28 results

    Code:
    root@bt:/usr/local/bin# dmitry -e gmail.com
    Deepmagic Information Gathering Tool
    "There be some deep magic going on"
    
    HostIP:72.14.254.83

    Found 28 E-Mail(s) for host gmail.com, Searched 0 pages containing 0 results
    
    All scans completed, exiting

    Now, my question is ::: why its not showing any single result for my domain & the second question is ::: why its only showing 28 results when searching gmail.com [we all know it should be much more]

    Regards

    I think you might have a bit of a misunderstanding of how this tool gathers those email addresses. Why don't you run a packet capture while the tool runs to see what its doing. It should explain why you are getting the results you are getting.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    I agree with the above.
    See also this guide on Dmitry I did a while back, to get a better idea of what's going on.

    Ettercap shows that it establishes a connection with google & altavista
    I think i am clear on this that it establishes a connection with search engine ^ search for possible email addresses, but my question was, in case of gmail.com why its coming with only a few results [i was wondering whether the developed put a limit on the no of possible email address, whether it can be increased or what]

    How many search results does it get back (or request for that matter)? Therein lies the key

    Some search engines (like Google) do limit the number of searches that can come from an IP address, and scraping search results is technically against the Google AUP.

    Its actually pretty straightforward to code up something yourself to gather email addresses in this way, and you can set the amount of results to gather yourself. I did it last year. If you use things like the Google search API and not scraping however, you are limited in the number of results you can make for a single search string....
