FindUsersByEmail returns a list of membership users where the user's email address matches the supplied emailToMatch for the configured ApplicationName property. If your data source supports additional search capabilities, such as wildcard characters, you can provide more extensive search capabilities for email addresses.

The results returned by FindUsersByEmail are constrained by the pageIndex and pageSize parameters. The pageSize parameter identifies the number of MembershipUser objects to return in the MembershipUserCollection collection. The pageIndex parameter identifies which page of results to return where 0 identifies the first page. The totalRecords parameter is an out parameter that is set to the total number of membership users that matched the emailToMatch value. For example, if 13 users were found where emailToMatch matched part of or the entire email address, and the pageIndex value was 1 with a pageSize of 5, then the MembershipUserCollection would contain the sixth through the tenth users returned. totalRecords would be set to 13.
