    You'll need to obfuscate your email address on your website to stop the bots getting them.

    Unless your server establishes a secure connection with other servers it talks to, and if your clients are not using SSL, all e-mail goes out as plain text. E-mail addresses are harvested as messages are transmitted.

    You can obfuscate but good luck.

    Lots of spam is from botnets anyway, there's really no feasible way to track them.
