Problem #13: Proxy Email Addresses

You are building a website and for the contact info, you'd like to leave your email address. Except that you know the SPAM bots are crawling all over the web for your email address. Leaving email addresses like mail <at> my domain <dot> com confuses the hell out of most end-users who want to click on an email and write an email.

Solution: Build a service which when you login (after a ridiculously simple sign up / sign in) will allow you to enter your email address and will create a proxy email address that you can use in public sites. The best bit, the service will also have a very effective SPAM filter to filter through potential SPAM emails and will only forward those that quality through to your actual email address.
