I saw this trick at Mr Phil Games website. If you scroll down, you will see a ‘contact us’ link that was pointing to TinyURL.com. The point it to use tiny url and create a link that points to your email address in a (hopefully) protected manner (as in “mailto:email@example.com”) .
I just created one for myself, try clicking it:
http://tinyurl.com/8b3e22 (yes, it might look strange but it’s safe to click it – it basically just lets you send email to me :)
By clicking that link, it opens your emailing software with my address. Pretty neat trick me thinks.
Word of warning though: I’m not sure if spambots can somehow fetch the email via link, so I take no responsibility if people manage to spam you using this method. I personally prefer using images (tinyurl.com address looks bit non-professional anyway), but just wanted to mention this trick. Use it with caution.
