After pressing the button 'encrypt!', your generated link will be shown here.
Just enter your email-address in the topmost form 'Link:' and press the button 'encrypt!'. Copy and paste the code from 3.1. into your head-section on your website and use the code from 3.2. as new '<a href="...'-link.
That's all. Nothing more.
Using detailed - plus advanced options:
- enter your email-address in the topmost form 'Link:'
- 2.1.: "Add 'mailto:' in encrypted link. If unchecked, add 'http://' in front, to prevent URL-spidering":
The MSB is normally used for encrypting mail-addresses. You can also encrypt normal URLs by ticking this box. If so ensure that you add 'http://' in front in the topmost form 'Link:'.
- 2.2.: "Use standard [DOT] and [AT SIGN] mode as linktext: Recommended.":
If you leave the check, your address will be encrypted like following: You choosed 'firstname.lastname@example.org' as mailto-link. The shown MSB-link will look like: harry[DOT]bones[AT SIGN]yournewsensationalowndomain[DOT]com. Not happy with it? Uncheck it and see...
- 2.3.: ... how you can fix that: Enter 'Harry Bones private mail' ... but do NOT enter 'email@example.com' here, because all efforts were for nothing.
- 2.4.: "Caesar-cipher-depth" let you select how many positions the letters and numbers will be changed. See more under the shown link to the Caesar-cipher at Wikipedia.
- 2.5.: "Text appearing in statusbar":
- 2.6.: "Text appearing when JS is disabled":
- press the button 'encrypt!'.
- copy and paste the code from 3.1. into your head-section on your website and use the code from 3.2. as new '<a href="...'-link.
What can I do if there are many sites on my website where I want to show my new address?
What if I have to encrypt multiple addresses?
If you don't change anything in the advanced options you can use the 3.1. code ONCE and you can use multiple addresses from 3.2.
Where can I use this encrypted mail-address?
On your website and on your business-card. NEVER use this address for ordering anything on the web. DO NOT use this address for signing in into a web-catalog, or for your contact address in a forum. NEVER show it anywhere else than on your website and only encrypted. NEVER show it uncrypted like firstname.lastname@example.org - never ever.
Can I use my old favourite mail-address for the MSB?
NO! Please understand, that it is very important to use a new and unburned email-adress for this tool. You can't use your old office-mailaddress which is flooded over with spam to stop spam. If an address is known to spammers - forget it and throw it away in your trash. Make a new one, do not use names like 'office@...', 'contact@...' or 'prename.surname@...' which can be guessed through trying. Think of something like 'sr34tfge456@...' or 'getincontactwithme@...'.
Spam or junk mails are unsolicited. They are electronically transmitted messages, that the recipient never asked for, or were sent without permission. This process is called spamming.
SPAM is originally a brand name for canned meat, which arose 1936 as appreciation of SPiced hAM. SPAM does NOT mean: 'Spiced Pork And Meat/haM' or 'Specially Prepared Assorted Meat'. The first spam mail was sent in 1978, in times the APRANET was still in use.
Spam causes considerable damage in the system of global communication. This is mainly due to the additional amount of data and the expense due to processing the mails.
Meanwhile, there exists a variety of spam filtering techniques for automatic detection and removal of spam in the mailbox. Some e-mail programs such as Thunderbird, or Vista's Windows Mail have integrated spam filter, either learning by themselves or via getting constant information by the update function, sorting out the advertising emails.
However, the filters are suffering from their error rates: Often spam e-mails are not reliably detect and still reach the inbox - false negatives. Also, the reverse error is possible: Desirable mails may be selected as spam due to filters which are too strict (so called false positives) and can don't reach the recipient at all or only delayed.
