TinyMailto.com lets you convert your e-mail address into a URL that is
protected from spammers by a captcha test.
You can use a tinymailto URL to put it in public places like web
pages, forum/e-mail signatures, etc. If someone wants
get your e-mail address, the person must pass a Captcha
test in order to
and use your e-mail address.
This way, you can protect your e-mail address from spammers
and web robots (web-bots).
This site is a free, public and reliable
Its started as an experiment on about converting an
idea into a reality. I "sometimes" have ideas of how
work. So, this time I decided to put this idea on the web.
Right now there are many users(check the stats on the blog
) and the site is in production mode.
Why I created this service?
Sometimes you need to put your e-mail address in your work, and
sometimes your work is put in a web page. The problem is that spammers
can get your e-mail from that web page in order to send you more SPAM
Since many years, people have
been doing some
sort of "encryptions" to their e-mail address and I think not all of
"encryptions" works. The most common "encryptions" are:
- myname _at_ example.com
- myname at example.com
- myname AT example DOT com
- myname [at] example [dot] com
The problem is that web robots, created by spammers
now can easily
"encryptions", and you end up having more and more SPAM
What if you can have a way to show your e-mail address only to a real
person? Well, this site is just for that!
