CONVERT AN EMAIL ADDRESS TEXT FILE TO HTML CODE

This prog - txt2mail.exe - takes a text file in your c:\ directory and converts it into an html source code page.

For a lot of emails it is easier than typing the addys into the page and selecting the "mailto:" to make the hyperlink. It takes the hassle out if hitting back.

First set up a text file (NotePad or other) containing the email addresses of the spammer. Copy paste the addy from the spammer's email to the text file BEFORE you send it to the 'Blocked Senders' list. (Use 'Properties>Details') If you don't, you can't copy/paste from the 'Blocked Senders' list! Collect about 20 email addys, or more, before using the prog. I just keep a copy of NotePad on the task bar for convenience.

I ALWAYS go off-line to read my mail. Otherwise, the sender can get info while you are connected.

The html page must have a hyperlink into it otherwise the 'spider' won't find it.

As this is a DOS prog you are restricted to the DOS filenames. Only eight characters and just numbers and letters.

You should have a text file (named eg mailin) for input like :-

spam5287@sodin.com
morespam7208@sodinagain.co.uk

Here is the actual text file used

You will find the htm page for putting on your web site in your root directory c:\ as eg - FILENAME.HTM

As I am very much a novice, I would appreciate any advice from the wise!
