Searching for my email address on the web

Which search engine can I use to see where my email address is publicly visible?
I used to be able to use google but google has turned off this functionality... at least as far as I can see.

If you have a unique user name  you can try doing a search for just that (without the @) and see if anything comes up.

I tested out several of the main search engines and it appears that this ability is no longer available with all the majors. (Google, Yahoo, AOL, Bing, Ask and About).

There were some 3rd party paid services and they seemed to have some positive results, but they would not give them to me without paying the fee.  And who knows what I would have gotten after paying.  Some of them seemed pretty shady at best.

This is what I saw as being the better of the results I found, but it's up to you to pay or not.  I researched several different terms to find this, but this one seemed to get a good review from this article: http://www.reverselookupguru.com/email-tracer-review.html

And here is a direct link to the provider that was recommended: http://www.emailtracer.com

I think this is going to be a paid service to get accurate information, but that is your call in the end.

The best plain old free search engine results I got was from Google though.

Of course, the action of requesting a search for an e-mail address can become a way of making the address publicly visible if the search itself isn't private.
