I've been using this for quite a while now:

  <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
  function WriteMailLink(user,domain,subject) {
    document.write('<a href="mai');
    if ( subject.length > 0 )  document.write("?subject="+subject);

With no "mailto:" or "@" sign directly visible in the source, it throws most
bots for a loop.

BOFH excuse #105:

UPS interrupted the server's power
