Here's a great suggestion from:
Marianne Podgorski writes: If you'd like to display your email address
within your web pages, but are afraid it will be harvested by Spam robots,
you can protect yourself. Instead of displaying the usual
mailto:, use the following code within your HTML:
<A HREF="mailto:email@example.com">Contact Us</A>
It'll display your email address correctly.

I would have thought that any evil robots out there, would be saerching raw
code rather than translating the code onto a monitor and reading that. If
so, 'hiding' an address inside a mialto: comand would have no effect. (or
worse, get you on a premium list of active website owners).
I don't know this is true so please read this as an enquiry, for comment,
rather than advice.
