Obfuscate mailto: email address with CF?
Posted on 2006-11-09
I am creating a business directory, where each business has address, phone, web address and possibly email address, all stored in a mySQL database.
Is there any reliable way to hide or obfuscate the email address with ColdFusion, if I want to create a mailto: link for each business? In the past I have created a contact form with the business info passed in the url, but for this site I am considering a simple text link that says "email" as a mailto link.
Thing is, I dont want to give away the email addresses to spammers..
