Protect email addresses in web pages (Version 2.1)This page will generate a HTML encoded mailto link that is reasonably 'spambot' proof. Spambots crawl over websites looking for email addresses, when they find one they add it to their database for junk email. Thank you to everyone for your great comments about this system. It's still useful now over 6 years since I originally wrote it. Perhaps you'll excuse a quick plug for a service I am involved with for jobs in New Mexico, please take a look at it if you're in that area!
Please note: we do not store or record any of the email addresses entered on this page.
18/12/2005 - First update in a long time - added a new option to generate encrypted email addresses suitable for use with MediaWiki software - these are tags such as [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org Click here to email me].
05/7/2003 - Now the email address is optional, if you want to use it to encode a string (eg a fax number).
