webform via email
This week’s target has been a troubled journey.
After publishing your email address on a website,
this becomes public and it is the first target of the “spambots”.
My initial idea was an easy alternative to mailto: links, to hide the email.
I’ve tried to setup a dedicated mailbox, which would receive
all emails from one-time visitors and unknown senders.
But it’s an additional email address to check,
also, it will soon be full of junk messages.
The only way to go is to follow the “spam prevention” tip
which was published in the news last week:
don’t publish your email address online
to get contacted online, use secure* web forms / contact forms
* = protected by robots that fill them automatically
The idea is to offer:
an email address associated with the form, bouncing all posts,
and to get in touch, it returns the link to the web form page
I hope I can show something next week.
