A site Free from Email Spam
Ever wondered how you
end up getting spam through email addresses on your site?
It's not as yet a major problem, but it does happen...
Sometimes spider-harvesters (robots) find email
addresses in html code. Using a form on your site allows you to change
the email address periodically, i.e. this month it could be sent to:
firstname.lastname@example.org which using a forwarder established in your control
panel, can then be sent to your usual email address.
By setting up the default email address to a non-existent address, any
mail sent to an address where a forwarder had been changed, wouldn't
i.e. If someone sent an email to say, email@example.com and you'd
since deleted that forwarder and established firstname.lastname@example.org then
the email would be sent to the address established in the control panel email
default setting. (You could set this to any unused address, i.e. email@example.com).
