    how to stop email spam from site
    I'm trying to trouble shoot this for a friend. On his site his contact info has his email address written out. Basically it's "myfriendsname@mail.com" He gets hundreds of spam emails from it. How are you supposed to put in email on a site and block spambots?

    BTW, I'm currently using DW to modify sites, if that's necessary info.

    Thanks!

    any easy way (but confuses some folks who want to email you) is:

    myfriendsname[at]mail[dot]com

    or

    myfriendsname @ mail . com

    or

    myfriendsname at mail dot com

    People would just need to figure out how to manually type in the email address in the correct manner

    I use a javascript on my site. It confuses a fair amount of spambots:
    Code:
    <script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript'>
    <!--
    var prefix = 'ma' + 'il' + 'to';
    var path = 'hr' + 'ef' + '=';
    var addy = 'email' + '@' + 'domain-name.com';
    document.write( '<a ' + path + '\'' + prefix + ':' + addy + '\'>' + addy + '</a>' );
    //-->
    </script>
    replace "email" and "domain-name.com" with the relevant parts for your email address

    I used to use a picture file of my email address - that was the ultimate, but this method seems to work well enough when combined with some decent antispam server side apps & mailing list rules in mail.app

    If you do a Google search you will get tons of scripts. It all depends what you want to use, what you feel comfortable with and/or what your server can handle. Scripts come in all flavors; PHP, Javascript, etc.

    I use a neat little application called ENKODER which you can find here

    Very simple, very straightforward, easy to use and most importantly, it works with spam :-)

    Try this:
    http://www.wbwip.com/wbw/emailencoder.html
    It will turn all the characters in to HTML entities (see the page for what that means if you don't know. It explains it perfectly.)
