  Trying to find... To use this option, fill in the registration form, but include your own name and email as a contact, requests kept online approx. 2 years.

  I'm sure I did this already... every now and then I send out emails, a proportion of these bounce back as "not found", often because it was a former work email or an ISP that no longer exists, as there is no longer any way to make contact I delete the record to keep things as current as I can..
