I have a username/samid and need to find the email address of this user.

I know only the account name/samid of the user and want to find the email of this user.
Can I do that with dsget or dsquery? I know how to search for a full name of a person but I cant seem to find any info on how to search by samid, is it possible?

I tried "dsget user -samid username", but that didnt work..

Not exactly.

You should use dsquery to search this user and dsget - to get details.

like:
dsquery user -samid username* | dsget user -email
