Email link source

Is there a way to find out if someone's email is sent as a result of clicking on a link on a webpage? Currently I use a href="[email protected]?subject=Website Enquiry">Email Us /a> and assume that emails with "Website Enquiry" subject field came as a result of someone clicking on the email link, but the person sending the email can easily change the subject field.

The only other way I know of is to us a web form and script to send the e-mail. That way you could add something to the e-mail that the user couldn't change.

Obviously this involves some sort of script (php or perl more than likely).

And configure it to send you the form results by email? That way you can be sure where the enquiry comes from, and you won't have a 'mailto' hyperlink which spambots can find.

A form - never thought of that. Do you have a link which gives advice on how to do this?
