Would you care to have a flexible page of thumbnail images? Where the
number of columns varies with the width of the browser window?

Perhaps this example will give you some ideas:

You may use the ".invalid" top level domain [1], like:

ge*******@example.invalid

Then you may include information in your signature about what domain
one should replace "invalid" with to contact you, like:

Replace "invalid" with "net" to reply.

Munge your E-mail address in the format of a valid address. Leave out
any comments.

Put your instructions to correct the munging in your signature area.
Just be sure your signature has "-- " (dash-dash-space without the
quotes) in the first line above the text; the space is important and
should not be omitted.

I use an alternative. I put my actual E-mail address in the
Organization header of my messages. Also, you can get my E-mail address
if you navigate my Web site, the address of which is in my signature.

Ignore Jukka when he is rude and insulting. Many of us do.

Because hyphen-hyphen-space is the convention for delimiting a sig;
because that's what news clients look for to display sigs differently (if

That's because it's a real sig if thus delimited. News clients can be

ACK

My current address is in use for many years now. I use it not only for
Usenet, but also for various newsletters and other websites where you
have to give an email address if you want to register for their service.
But thanks to server-side spam filters and a local SpamPal with various
plugins (the most effective being the Bayes filter) my inbox is nearly
spam-free, maybe one or two a day come through. I can live with that.

Hmm, I don't know about Outlook. Here on my machine SpamPal runs as a

localhost with some special login credentials, then SpamPal logs-in to
the real server and fetches the mails. Nothing special.

Be aware that newsreaders do not necessarily display the Organization in
the common or default view. So you should IMHO put an allusion in your
signature.
