I am trying to find a long lost friend from high school days who sent me an e-mail last year, but I was unable to contact. How can I find their current address?

You can type the name into the google search bar but be specific if you can because you will come up with everyone with that name, or you can try whitepages.com as MCW suggested or a yahoo people search. I paid to get a phone number and address from one of the sites (can't remember which one, it may have been people search) but it was only $1.75, so that was reasonable. Good luck.
Could you try setting up a facebook or myspace account and searching their real name on there? Many people from high school have found me there. You can use email or real name to find people, and its free.
Another thing you could do is try classmates.com. They do charge you for certain things, but I am pretty sure you just enter your school and grad year and it comes up with all the people in your class that year (if they also have accounts that is). It is possible this friend may have an account with any of these sites, since they are all very popular, not just among the younger crowds anymore.
You could also call the high school you attended and ask for the name and phone number of the person(s) in charge of the reunion committee of the year your friend graduated because they keep current contact info. I found two very dear friends that way and it didn't cost a penny :-)
