Re: [NTO] Email extractor

Anyway, there is a NTB library named "HideEmail" that does a good job of it and is quite handy any time one wants the numeric ascii codes for some characters.

address I've put on webpages, and the bots have had plenty of time to pick
that address up. I've noticed, though, a different address I use in
newsgroups is quite the target!

spam sign ups:
What is Sneakemail?
Sneakemail is a free service that you can use to generate disposable
These "sneak email" addresses are aliases of your real address, which
is kept hidden.
You can enter these Sneakemail addresses into web forms or use them to
contact e-businesses without the risk of your real address being abused
or bought and sold.
Consider each Sneakemail address as an informal agreement between you
and an online business or organization.

Julie, I'm sorry I can't give you an URl that verifies what I said about the numeric codes. I was laughed at for suggesting that method once (sigh). After that I've seen it mentioned here and there but I haven't noted down where.

headers, etc.) to a number of addresses for the domain such as:
info@... ...and so on.
For the most part though, the SPAMmers keep signing up for all
the free mailing thingies. For me, I just did not have the time
to pursue it.
There are, well, at least one free utility that sends back a Mail
Delivery Subsystem <MAILER-DAEMON@...> type
post hiding x-sender, etc. to make it appear the address is no
longer valid. I seemed to be having some success with it, but it
is hard to tell. The idea I suppose is to keep sending the
message to all SPAMmers so that hopefully your eMail address will
be removed from "master" eMail SPAM lists.
One day when I was playing, but never used it because I figured
the bots had it all figured out a long, long time ago. I think
I will try some of the other methods mentioned though. Thanks
