    It’s totally dependent on how much information the use of the e-mail address has decided to make available.

    For example, if they have a facebook account attached to the e-mail address you might be able to determine a full name and a small photo or if they’ve posted the e-mail address on-line it would likely show up in a google search.

    However, it the address isn’t attached to anything like that, you might not be able to find out much of anything else unless it’s part of a police investigation.
