Blackman's E-mail encoder

Nowadays there is almost no Internet users who never received spam (advertising postings, which they didn't subscribe). All over the Internet around the clock thousand of spammer's e-mail harvesting robots stroll. They collect addresses of potential victims. A unique way to avoid receiving spam is to publish the e-mail address nowhere and never.

What can people do if this way doesn't for them? In this case you will not make a gift to spamers as the readily available electronic address. Just encode it using Blackman's E-mail encoder!

E-mail encoder allows to choose any of four e-mail encode metods: from simple (not encoded) link up to JavaScript (address extracting is possible only by manual processing). So functionality of the link is completely kept!

All coding mechanisms are based on stealth-technology. Each new created link differs from any previous. There is no code, that identifies link created using this program.

Advantages of E-mail encoder in comparison with other similar programs are:
  • Free distribution (Freeware)
  • Offers an opportunity to choice one of four Encode method
  • An opportunity to use an image as a link
  • Small size (40 Kb against 300-400 Kb)
  • Multilingual interface
  • Multiplatform (the program works both in Windows, and in DOS)
  • All links work correctly even in IE 3.0
