I need to post an e-mail address to the contact page of a website. What's the safest way to do this? (Is
there a safe way?)

In the past I've used the Hivelogic email enkoder
. Can anyone vouch for the efficacy of this method? I've considered using the enkoder with an additional layer of misdirection: for example, creating a dummy email@example.com address which, if it became a spam target, would be changed to firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.
What about posting the address as an image? Is this effective?
I need to get my contact information up, but I'm pretty darn wary about doing so...
