Re: Is email-guessing legal in Switzerland?

I'm not sure what area of law could make guessing an email address illegal.

If they guessed the email in order to send you a personal message, surely the content of that message or the intent behind it is the point in question. Guessing your email isn't really any different to phoning the company and asking for you by name.
Yes I agree, sounds like a form of “social engineering” that should be allowed by the regulation. Thank you for sharing your point!
