We do not provide e-mail addresses as part of the API or in any other form. This is something we guarantee our contributors https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy#Email_Addresses and is very unlikely to change (for numerous, including legal, reasons).

There have been a couple of ideas around enabling messaging from 3rd party apps to the internal message system, see for example https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/pull/1431#issuecomment-295668951 for a solution that would protect the privacy of our users. If you feel like implementing it, I'm sure a PR would be welcome.
