Email Graphics

Posting your email address on a web page in a machine readable format is simply asking for trouble because thousands of robots crawl the Web looking for email addresses to add to spam mailing lists. One way to avoid this is not use text or HTML (which is machine readable) but instead put your email address in a graphic that can only be read by a human being.E-Mail Sigs is a free tool that creates graphics for nine of the most popular email services, including Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, MSN and Yahoo!
