Default Protecting email from spammers

Hello,

I have an jpg image with an email address on it - Because the actual email is part of the image and therefore not written in HTML I have placed a mailto link on it. My question is how can i protect or protect as best as possible the email address from spammer bots?

Cheers

If you create a mailto, the spambots will still get it.
To be completely safe, just remove the mailto and let the user do the rest.

What I do is leave the mailto there and make sure I use good server side spam protection (spamassassin) and good local spam protection (thunderbird). I literally get no spam this way.
