We have seen the obvious ways such as using [at] instead of @ for protecting? which unfortunatley is not good enough as spam bots evolve too. Having a image showing the mail id is mostly safe, but makes it impossible for the user to copy and paste it. Services such as reCAPTCHA have made it possible to protect you mail id with an image.However, for the lazy user this may be too much work! to do, just to see the mail id.
Few ingenious ways to hide a mail id in plain site:
- Remove the "meaning of the word that will confuse the spam bot" from the email@example.com
- Use the popular version of the domain in firstname.lastname@example.org
- Do the math in email@example.com
- No numbers in firstname.lastname@example.org
