Encoding email addresses to prevent spam

  Awestruck 11:16 20 Aug 2006

For along while I was able to successfully use ascii encoded email addresses on my many websites to prevent spam. The encoding took the form info@isp When the visitor clicks 'Send', something(in Outlook Express?)now blocks the email. A 'Check Names'window pops up saying No matches found for info@ '
I am busily changing all the addresses to pictures but this is a poor substitute for a clickable link. I do not want to use javascript for several reasons.
Can anyone suggset another way of encoding several email address on a single page?

Try this; it`s the one I use for a single address. No problems.

Thank you for your prompt answers.
The answer from anchor is the one that no longer works with internet explorer/Outlook Express.

I will look into the answer provided by harris tweed. and let you know shortly.

Awestruck: I have not tried it with Outlook Express, but it certainly still works with IE and Outlook 2003.

Just tried it again; no problem.

Awestruck: I had a thought and just tried it using my notebook which uses IE and Outlook Express.

Again no problem, OE was launched and the correct e-mail address entered as the recipient.

Harristweed, Your suggested solution was great fun but it did not provide a live link.

Anchor: Thanks for trying the ascii solution. I must be doing something wrong. I will try it again and let you know what the problem was.

Thank you both for your interest and help
