I don't click on stuff I just hit reply for my email program. Also since you 
brought that format up. Also I have html mail disabled so if you send 
something like that it becomes unuseable.

import sgmllib
yourmungedstring = 
sgmllib.charref.sub(lambda x: chr(int(x.group(1))), yourmungedstring)

That gives 'joe@user.or.jp'

I have talked with some people and I am assured that most spam crawlers can 
deal with that also.
