Hi

Do you use any additional addons to stop spammers scanning your website for the mailto: code so they can pick up your email address and send you spam emails.

Since I have setup a contact form on my site, I receive less spam.

What about you? Do you recieve a lot of spam?

Thanks

We installed ASSP deluxe on our Cpanel servers and I have to say that we have reduced by 99% spam without loosing legit email.
This app have a powerfull bayesian filter (which have to be teach) and become better and better with the time.

We get plaqued by this problem. I have been playing with a couple of email harvesters and it looks like they search for mailto: and not the @ single so displaying your email address without linking it to a mailto: will probably reduce the spam quite a bit.

Sounds like the dream spam blocker.

If you are using cpanel then you can setup rules using spamassassin from your cPanel for restricting spam email.
