Hi Matt,

Thank you very much for your prompt reply.

I tried replacing @ with &#64; and it seemed to work. But don't you think
that the 'automated tools' are clever enough to trace this ?

Please let me know your thoughts.

You could replace @ with &#64; - this seems to work for me.

ie. myname&#64;mydomain.com - the browser will interpret it for you.
