spambot email protection method? - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

Is anyone using, or know of, a method of protecting email addresses from spambots that is easy for clients to use in Contribute? The technique has to be simple for my clients, who are Contribute users that don't understand any HTML or javascript at all, so I need to find a simple method that they can learn to use whenever they need to add an email address to a web page in Contribute. All the web pages are in Coldfusion, so a server-sdie solution is possible if there's some such suitable method. Any ideas or experiences?...

    In my experience the best solution for this is to not post any e-mail addresses
    at all on the pages. I realize that this is not always tenable. And it will
    require some additional work to create contact forms for all the uses you are
    using.

    One form processor that I have found to work really well is

    On my site we are using it in conjunction with the ReCaptcha project to cut
    down on the amount of spam submissions we get.
