1. Introduction

    To implement a WHois email address service similar to whois domain name

2. Background
        Currently a user can go to a service like http://www.whois.net
        and lookup a domainname.If i query explodingmoon.org It would
        output WHOIS Imformation for explodingmoon.org.

        There has to be a way i can type in a valid email address as well
        as input to WHois service. Currently no such email directory exists.

3. General Information of the service
        A user is likely to have several email addresses that he or she
        uses. A concept of primary email address can be used for the
        Whois service. I am pradeep@explodingmoon.org as well as
        pradeepan88@hotmail.com and pradeeplugimwidnaus@yahoo.com as well as
        A user should be able to register his or her email address with
        WHois registry and add other details about them.
        A location field of the email address can be used to
        implement email security. if my email is pradeep@explodingmoon.org
        and i give my location as Thailand, my email service provider can
        provide me additional security by restricting access from netherlands.
        There could be any level of details. Registration of email addresses
        in the registry can be via email or via webforms.A user choses what
        information he or she choses to reveal. I can chose to reveal my contact

        The current email protocols SMTP or whatever need to query sender email
        address only if its valid and authorised by the email regsitry, the senders
        email should be delivered. In the last 5 years i have been frauded by emails
        like efcc.nigeria.org@representative.com and they have extorted cash from me
        as if its legal fees to recieve funds and it has resulted in too much harm to me.
        If i can configure my email client to recieve emails from those authorised
        by email registry, i would not have this problem.

    I have been a publisher of http://www.dhyanayoga.info since 2004/2005
    and http://www.explodingmoon.org since 2008. I have used bluehost.com
    for hosting my website and have found the need to know who views my site,
    their email addresses and not just IP address. Also i have been using
    services of hotmail.com, yahoo.com, facebook.com and found the need for
    a Single SignON to the WWW and an email registry and a concept of
    primary email address is a precursor to that implementation.
