    On some web pages e-mail addresses are coded for safety reasons. In place of @ appears (a) or (at)...
    do you think this is necessary? Does anyone have experience with abuse of mail adresses because of showing them properly in a website?

    It's absolutely necessary. Personally I would even avoid the joe(at)bloggs(dot)com method as well.

    I have a couple of accounts that have been rendered useless because of spam as a result of them appearing on pages in plain text.

    i just looked at your site to see how you handle it...
    so i guess the safest way is to have a form to fill in for contacting like you do. that's a pity, i think it's nicer to let people write a message the way they are used to in everyday mails.
    but if it's unavoidable...

    Alas that is the way of the web it seems. Maybe a compromise would be to have a form for initial contact to be made, whereupon you reply to the sender thus supplying an address for further communication.

    would you mind showing me how your contact.php in your site works?

    That's probably how I got so much Paypal spam, from having my email on in text on my site. It's been going on for a month, I've contacted them twice, and they seem to blow me off. I'll have to change the address and take the text address off my site sadly...

    I saw something very interesting on a site that Scott Boms designed. http://www.therace.ca/details.html - Check the source. It seems that he has some really cool javascript that displays the email address as clickable, but in the source, there is no email address to be seen....

    I think its brilliant!

    oh ja that's interesting.
    i found something more simple but maybe safe enough:

    just replace <a href=mailto:monnom@mail.net> by
    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    var mymail="<a href=mailto:";
    mymail +="myname";
    mymail +="@";
    mymail +="myaddress.org>";
    document.write(mymail+"message you want to appear on your site</a>");
    //-->
    </script>
    (found this on www.jejavascript.net/mailcach.php wich is a site in french)
