Collecting email addresses from ads a possibility?

I know that Google tested collecting email addresses from ads a year or so ago. Was this discontinued? An agency told me that they could do it, but I can do it myself if it is still a feature. Looking for how to do it if email collection is still available.

Hi Kathi,

 

I think you are after Communication Extensions (seen in point 4 here). They were a beta test and didn't reach public use unfortunately.

Hi Kathi,

 

Further to Scott's reply, if you look into this make sure you don't fall foul of the various AdWords policies concerning collection of personal information, e.g.
