My sites have only been live for three months now and I am already getting around 30 spam e's a day (along with the odd virus). Is there a way of limiting or stopping this without removing the mailto facility?
What I now do is use a feedback form that allows the user to submit their information using a web form. The form data is then sent to my email address, but the sender is never able to find out my email address. It is all handled on the server side.
I actually find this is better for collecting genuine feedback. I think users are not sure about using mailto links because in doing so they are giving away their own email details.
I enumerated the various downsides of the various methods here: [webmasterworld.com...]
So I receive all these bounced rejections from people, and I'm not sending the mail.. why would someone spam people using firstname.lastname@example.org ...
it's driving me mad ..
but one of the domains this is happening with is simply a parked domain, no site, no content..
I can't see the benefit or purpose of bombing people with my domain when there is no 'return of spam'..
:-) a new 3 letter acronym ... ROS ...
Lobo; maybe you could add a line to your robots.txt - spambots no ROS. :)
The man or woman who manages to put a stop to the practice of e:mail spamming will become a very, very wealthy person!
