If your site contains your email address as part of a mailto: link and you haven't been spammed yet then well done :)
By having your email address in a readable format you will eventually be hit by an email spam bot. Their function in life is to trawl every website looking for email addresses it can add to its database, with the sole purpose of spamming you at a later date.
So what do these bots look for? Well firstly it might look for mailto: links. Alternatively it may look for email syntax firstname.lastname@example.org for example.
Well what can you do to stop them? the answer is easy - use the code generator below :)
I decided to add some extras to the script which I'll explain later but here's how the generator works.
Both your real email address and mailto: link will be invisible to the bots - protecting you from spam.
The extras I have added allow you to set the subject line (up to 64 Characters) of the email and up to 255 characters of text in the body of the message making life easier for your visitor. All they have to do is write their bit and send - the rest is all filled in for them :) See the image - it explains it better :)
Enjoy the script and please feel free to contact me if you have any comments or suggestions.
