I know the Satoshi Nakamoto profile: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=3 and his public key: http://forum.bitcoin.org/Satoshi_Nakamoto.asc

And I know maybe Satoshi is not a real person, but a pseudonymous of a group of people.

But there is a way to send a message to Satoshi? Is there a public email? Any kind of contact?

The email he used was satoshin@gmx.com.

But do you know if it still works? Thanks. –  Felipe Micaroni Lalli Nov 11 '12 at 5:24
@FelipeMicaroniLalli I seriously doubt that he still checks it. Don't know if it still works. –  theymos Nov 11 '12 at 5:45
WARNING: do not send any email to this address, it was compromised: bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=775174.0 –  Felipe Micaroni Lalli Sep 9 '14 at 1:50

He used satoshin@gmx.com (from original Bitcoin whitepaper) and satoshi@vistomail.com (from email logs). gmx.com is a free email service that may or may not have had location based restrictions on registration at the time. vistomail.com is an email service from anonymousspeech, the domain registrar proxy he used to register bitcoin.org.
