tl;dr: It appears that the email addresses appearing in the alleged email are accurate. This does not validate nor refute the content of said email.
The New York Post published today the two articles “Hunter Biden emails show leveraging connections with his father to boost Burisma pay” and “Senate committee investigating alleged Hunter Biden drive, smoking-gun email“. According to The Verge, “Facebook has reduced the reach […] pending a fact-check review”. Vox calls it “a suspicious effort to swing the election”. According to Motherboard, “Twitter […] started blocking sharing of the article in line with the site’s policy against hacked material.”.

Searching Intelligence X for Mr. Pozharskyi’s email address reveals a historical whois record from 2014:
It shows that he is the registrant of the domain aigpu.org, with the following Whois details:
Registrant Name:Vadym Pozharskyi Registrant Organization:Burisma Holdings Registrant Street: Ryleeva, 10, Registrant City:Kiev Registrant State/Province:Kiev Registrant Postal Code:01129 Registrant Country:UA Registrant Phone:+380.0442560104 Registrant Phone Ext: Registrant Fax: Registrant Fax Ext: Registrant Email:firstname.lastname@example.org
The physical address listed with Burisma Holdings matches with company details listed in the business directory dnb.com and other public sources (including indirectly in this SEC filing which mentions Burisma Holdings Limited).
Therefore, it is accurate to historically associate Vadym Pozharskyi as a member of Burisma Holdings with the email address, email@example.com.
