Petty and uninteresting e-mail format question

For some firms with [email protected] e-mail addresses. In this case Evercore...

What if there are multiple people with the same last name?

I am asking this because I found a banker that I want to reach out to (he is an alumni from my school, He has a decently unique last name, but just to be safe....) and I am afraid the e-mail will not get to him.

This is the most petty post I've written here.

Thanks guys.

I've seen this before and there's a lot of variations... [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]...

Just ask, man. It'll make your life easier.

How do you "ask HR" exactly?

Do you just email them saying "Oh I am interested in contacting _____ because they went to my school and I want to cold-email them about job opportunities but want to make sure I get the right one because their name is generic, will you help me?"

Somehow I dont feel like that will go over very well...has anyone tried this??
