Protect email from spam

If you are including email addresses of staff or faculty on your site, there is the risk that a spam-bot can harvest the addresses, increasing the spam found in in-boxes. To prevent this, you can use the Invisimail module to configure the email fields to be hidden from spam-bots.

Here’s how it works**:

Invisimail scans content for email addresses and then converts each character of the address to its ASCII-code equivalent. The email address will appear normally on the page, but the source html will not appear as an email address. For even more security, the filter can use a JavaScript write command to further obscure the email address.
