[pmwiki-users] Problems with ProtectEmail

Last year I commented on this list that I found ProtectEmail satisfactory,  but
complaints from some of my users with email addresses on my
website receiving spam made me investigate further.

First I found an improved version by Damien from 2008 that improves the
hiding algorithm

I thought I would test it on the various typical mailto: links found on my
using the link suggested by Damien.

I was very distressed to find that of my nine examples only two were picked
up the regex expression that locates mailto: expressions,
and it was not the simple ones I expected. (To do this view the source of
the page)

I will try to look at the regex, but I'm a novice.

This is just a general warning that if you are using this recipe it is
likely, based on my experience,
that your email addresses are exposed to the world.
