Secure Email List logo

As spam bots become more sophisticated, email php links for emails end up being outsmarted by spam bots. Spam bots are similar to search engine bots, but instead, they pick up every href="mailto: link to fetch email addresses. While adding something like "no spam" in the address most likely works, it is annoying for people who are emailing, since they can't just click the link.

Secure Email List, code named SecurEmailL (got to find something that scores practically 0 in google :-) ) is a simple php script that will use a form to display email addresses. Using the form, the user must select the person he/she wants to contact and hit a submit button. Then, the email address is displayed and the web surfer can click on it. This makes the POST method required to actually get access to the email link. Spam bots will most likely never use the POST method as doing so to random forms would cause messes on some sites that have public forms, such as a guest enabled forum, for example.

The features of this script will be:

  • Categories in order to classify contacts if needed, which include their own form with a drop down menu to select the person to contact.
  • Admin CP for adding and deleting contact addresses and categories.
  • Easy to understand file database for storing information. This makes manual editing easy, for reordering things.
  • Easy to use for web surfers. Simply select the person's name in the drop down menu and hit submit!

    This script is still quite simple, but we are planning to add more features such as admin CP functions to reorder categories/contacts, and to make the overall script look nicer.

    Released!
