Is there a way to find out the users by their email address on a Stack Exchange site?

I tried putting the email in the search box, but I got no results.

Any other methods?

    If you understand how gravatar works and hash their email, then you might be able to do what you want if the user has been on the site for a long time and hasn't recently changed their email. The newer hashes are salted. – Adam Davis Jan 28 '14 at 3:57

No. A user's email address and/or OpenID information are not public information and users cannot search for them. This is not a social network, and there's not really any reason why someone would need to locate another user by email address anyways. If you do really know someone and you have some legitimate reason to know their account on a site, go ask them in person.
