as a Graphic instead of an Hyperlink? I am using Dreamweaver MX. Thank you.

Sorry, should have said for use on a website, but as the thread is in the Webdesign forum you probably guessed that.

It will still need to contain a link in the source (although this can be obfuscated) but to use a graphic simply select the graphic and set the link to "mailto: [email protected]" .you can do this simply in dreamweaver using the email link button next to the hyperlink and anchor buttons on the toolbar(common tools)

for an example and to see it in the source click here

horiz5, thanks for that but I was looking at something the FE said in a thread that to stop spammers harvesting email addresses from websites, "don't put your email on a website as a hyperlink use a graphic" See this thread. click here

Your example still shows the real email address in the status bar when you hover the mouse over the link?

the recommendation the FE makes will still show the address in the status bar, what you need to do is to obfuscate the address within the source code, click here
