Spam robots and browser history problems...

Two HyperMail issues - one is a re-request...
  1. HyperMail leaves e-mail addresses out in the open where spam robots can harvest addresses. Can we at least have an option in the RC file that lets us specify the user/domain separator from "_at_" to some other string?

I was just reading about the E-mail protector script at and wishing for a better method for HyperMail. I currently use Basic Authorization to block robots, but the readers hate it.

2. I purge mailing list messages to my HyperMail listings DAILY. When a reader comes back on day 2 to read new messages, their browser says and thinks that 0001.html (etc etc) have already been read because the file names are not date-specific. Can we PLEASE switch HyperMail to use of a time stamp in the file name? Something a wildcard delete can handle, like 0001-05111999224500.html ???
