I use this with better success than encoding the address.  You could
also encode the real info in the body and make it even harder.  When
you hover over the link you will see the mailto: appear in the status
In the Head place this.


<!-- Begin
var user;
var domain;
var suffix;

function jemail(user, domain, suffix){

document.write('<a href="' + 'mailto:' + user + '@' + domain + '.' +
suffix + '">'+ user + '</a>');


//  End -->

In the Body put
Email: <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

<!-- Begin
jemail("yourname", "yourdomain", "net");
//  End -->
</script> thelinktext </a>
