    hide email from spanners
    hi guys

    i was told that spam bots can now detect your mailto: email@addresses.com

    and add it on to mailing lists, this is worrying but i was told there also was a cure, a hex value or something sounding similar? whereby u can enter values in your code but it still emails to the same address.

    any help / assistance on where i can insert my email and get a hex html code? webpage or program? i searched on google and only found a mailtoencryptor win program, not very helpful.

    the inet has so much resource but too much of its useless junk, it needs to be filtered, the content has to get better.

    All that I have seen is people doing their mail to links as a java script where it doesn't have your full email typed in one line
    It looks somethings like
    name='email'
    server='adresses.com'

    I will take alook to see if I can find the exact script

    <SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">
    <!--
    emailE=('yourname@' + 'emailserver.com')
    document.write('<A href="mailto:' + emailE + '">' + emailE + '</a>')
    //-->
    </script>

    So you just have to put in your email address where it says yourname and your server in the emailserver.com part and you are safe

    That will filter out most spam robots. There are a couple more ways, one is just make an href link to a php script, inside of which you just set a header as a mailto location, eg
    <?php
    header( "Location: mailto:name@address.com" );
    ?>

    That completely hides the address from robots since it is almost impossible to view the source code. But even this is not foolproof, since your address could still be manually added to a database. So the only real way to stop robots is to use a html form - simple but effective.
    I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.
