Install this mod to protect any email addresses on your forum from spammers, by transparently encoding email addresses using a slightly modified version of Spam-me-not.

Example: @cszen.com becomes @cszen.com - a random mixture of decimal and hexadecimal notation that means exactly the same thing.

You can click an email link that is encoded like this and send an email to someone; exactly the same as it would be if it wasn't encoded. Also hides MSN account email addresses in MSN Messenger links.

This technique has been tested against a few commercial email harvesters and none of them found any email addresses encoded with this script. But they might, in the future. Still, this is better than nothing ;)

This method does not require JavaScript. In fact, it even works with non-graphical browsers. Andreas Neudecker (Spam-me-not's author) has tested it with elinks, w3m and lynx as well as the more popular, Mozilla/Netscape, Opera, and Internet Explorer browsers. And based on my own testing, it also does not affect Firefox in any way.

To install this mod (and many others): Download Spam-me-not1.0.1.zip. Click Admin, then click Package Manager, then Download New Packages. Under Upload a Package, click Browse and find the Spam-me-not1.0.1.zip. Then click Upload and follow the prompts.

Note: Only tested with SMF 1.0.2 - The modification should work in previous versions, but the installer might not. If you get any problems, please reply with your SMF/Spam-me-not version numbers, and I'll try to fix the problems as soon as possible.
