    Hey,

    The company we are with, moved Data centers about a month ago. Since then, we have had alot of spam picking up our emails off our websites, including customers, and sending alot of spam.

    Before the move, we never got any.

    We have spam assasin installed, at least we did before the move.

    I know we could just put a [at] instead of @ on the pages, or add a simple script to stop bots from reading pages, but its a hassle.

    Is there a setting or a way to stop spam from reading the emails? or how can I edit spam assasin settings.


    Thanks in advanced.

    Search the forum. SPAM is covered in so many threads. You also need to check spamassassin web site for more information on how to setup spam rules.

    Here:

    http://www.pinnacledisplays.com/unicode-converter.htm

    is a neat little Javascript-based tool for converting ascii text to a string of unicode-encoded characters.

    I use this for encoding all the email addresses displayed on publically accessible websites and this seems to prevent email address harvesters from getting their hands on them.
