you can obtain this information from an IContributor object using getEmailAddress() method.

From a work item you only have to retrieve the contributor (I suppose from the author or the owner) as a IContributorHandle and then retrive the object using the IItemManager.

Thanks Michele,

I am creating  server side plug-in, used below code to retrieve. But IItemManager & getEmailAddress is not resolving, Any specific package i have to import?

IContributorHandle createor = workItem.getCreator();

IItemManager mid = createor.getEmailAddress();

On server side you have to use IRepositoryItemService instead of IItemManager (which is used by plain api, not sdk).

IRepositoryItemService itemService = getService(IRepositoryItemService.class);
IContributorHandle creatorH = workItem.getCreator();
IContributor creator = (IContributor)itemService.fetchItem(creatorH,IRepositoryItemService.COMPLETE);

You have also to set IRepositoryItemService as prerequired service. Is not so simple if you have not develop other stuff on RTC server side. I suggest you to take a look to the SDK wiki page (the examples on follow-up and advisor creation).
