    Masking Email Addresses (2002)

    I would like to mask the email address in my forms to prevent email harvesting from the web site. I can do this with a script for a general email reference in the web site, but I do not know how to within the form. Can anyone help?

    Someone posted this elegant solution earlier. My suggestion would be to encode your address and simply paste the encoded address in the appropriate locations in the form properties dialog box.

    Re: Masking Email Addresses (2002)

    Hi Catherine,

    Found this in the search and would like to use it to encode the email address my website. I'm stuck on where to paste the info once its encoded. Your directions state to paste it in the "form properties dialogue box". When I right click the border on the page I don't get a choice of form properties. I get page or border properties. Where do I find the form properties dialogue section?

    Thanks,
    Leesha

    Hi Leesha
    Right click within the form itself.
