Subject: [h-cost] OT: Helpful Information
I ran across some information last week on a tech list. I wanted to
along to you all because so many h-costumer have websites . It is a
on how spammers get your email address,
After reading the study, you can easily use keystrokes to encode your
address by going to this website,
. All you need to do is write your email address and click on encode.
Since spammers heavily harvest from messageboards, I suggest you
encode your email address there too.
Now, I have been encoding our email addresses for a week on our new
webpages. Instead of writing mailto: youremail at address.com , write
the numbers from the encoding website. When you write the tag do like
<B><FONT FACE="Arial" COLOR="#890707">Questions??? email: </B></FONT><A
Make sure to put the visual like as something besides your address or
spammers will get it. In the example, I used the word *HERE*. When
click on the word *HERE* their email software will pop up but in the
sender's name is your regular email address. I tested and proved this
they don't see all the numbers.
Please feel free to pass this message along to friends. The more people
can stop these people from spamming us the better.
