eMailgate Help

What is mailto?

mailto: links opens the client's e-mail system and starts a new e-mail. The format is straight forward: mailto:user@domain

You should never publish your email or mailto links on the web, since they are easily found by spambots. eMailgate provides mailto redirects which redirect the browser to a mailto link by using javascript. Your email address is then encoded inside the script making it almost impossible for spambots to detect. If the client browser is not java enabled the standard contact from will be displayed instead.

For maximum secrecy and protection you can disable the mailto redirect feature in your emailgate. Your email address will then never be displayed to visitors.
