There is no need to explain what is spam and how annoying it can be. If you
left your real e-mail address on a public forum, blog or newsgroup you will
became a victim of SPAM. Sooner or later e-mail harvesting robots crawling the
internet will find your email address and add it to their database.
The same story is with the contact e-mail addresses written on your website.
Webmasters and administrators are suffer from a great amount of SPAM e-mail
Anti-spam filters do not solve the problem completely because spammers are
very inventive in finding ways to trick the filtering software. So the most
effective method is to hide your e-mail address from e-mail harvesting robots.
The most widely spread method to do it is to transform e-mail address so
only human can read it.
For example, instead of writing real e-mail address email@example.com write
slightly encrypted one - brandon[at]domain.com or brandon(-kills-spammers)@domain.com.
Another approach is to represent e-mail address not as a text but as image.
Above methods are quite effective but there is a significant disadvantage -
User needs to edit E-mail address so it will became usable. It is not possible to
to send a mail by clicking it.
Voynex has developed an anti-spam solution allowing to protect e-mail addresses
and make this protection transparent for the website visitor.
How it works
Voynex Email Guard script is designed to protect e-mail addresses
on the website from the e-mail harvesting software and to make this protection
transparent (invisible) for the website visitor. User still can click, copy
and paste e-mail address and does not know that e-mail address on the website is encrypted.
As you already know, to protect e-mail address it has to be unreadable for the
robots. For example mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org can be encrypted like this:
mail_to_brandon_at_domain.com or just brandon_at_domain.com.
Voynex Email Guard will make this address readable again for the
website visitor, but not for the e-mail harvester.
