Enumerate Root User Email Address from the AWS Console

Based on error responses from the AWS Console it is possible to determine if a given email address belongs to the root user of an AWS account.

From the AWS Console, ensure the Root user radio button is selected and enter an email address that you suspect owns an AWS account.

If that email address is valid, you will be prompted to enter a password. If that email address is invalid, you will receive an error message:

There was an error - An AWS account with that sign-in information does not exist. Try again or create a new account.
