Re: Is email-guessing legal in Switzerland?

Guessing your email isn't really any different to phoning the company and asking for you by name.
Exactly.

Often, but not always, larger companies or organisations simply follow firstname.surname@organisationorcompanyname.ch. It's not rocket science. Some even use their website to invite one to mail employees on an address of this, or another given, format.

In my experience quite a lot of mail is initiated - and very conveniently so - in just this way: by guessing from a range of standard formats, or by following the known format of other employees of the company or institution. Seems perfectly reasonable to me.
