[Edited to add, this is an entry for Andrea's Monday style challenge. Her post is here.]

For a detailed study on the effectiveness on an obfuscation method, have a read over at Nikita The Spider's excellent article Ingen Reklam, Tack (No Spam, Please). A primer on spam can be found at CDT.org's article Why Am I Getting All This Spam?

Can anyone out there recommend a strong PHP formmail script?

Andrea, it's a shame that it has to be that way. Not so bad for the big companies that can afford to manage it by hiring experts. But for micro-business owners and hobbyists spam can be crippling.

Anonymous, I've heard that mentioned over at Anders.com in his Spam Relay thread. I'll have to go check it out. Thanks for the tip.
