abyrne Posted March 19, 2008 Share Posted March 19, 2008 I run a website for a non-profit. In an effort to prevent spambots from collecting the "mailto:" email addresses in the HTML, I created a form to send email to staff from the website. Unfortunately, the web server (IIS) email feature is notoriously unreliable- some of the emails are lost entirely, many of them are delayed for weeks, and as they are coming from a website- our mail host tends to treat them as spam. So my question- if I use the regular mailto: HTML links to make it easy to email from our website, and exclude the page with that link in the robots.txt file- will this protect our email addresses from being collected for adverse purposes? -Amanda Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
