The CkEmail library has a method called, unSpamify. Realizing it has something to do with SPAM and looking up the definition of "obfuscate" as listed in the description... what exactly does this method do? I can't find any examples or documentation about it.
Thanks jpbro. :-)
That's not what it does. The UnSpamify method does not change the URL or the HTML displayed content. It removes HTML comments, and it un-obfuscates URLs what were obscured with encoding.
HTML comments can be used to break up words. For example: VIA<!-- Write your comments here -->GRA

The documentation says:
Unobfuscates emails by undoing what spammers do to obfuscate email. It removes comments from HTML bodies and unobfuscates hyperlinked URLs.
My assumption would be re: onfuscated URLs, the function would turn this:
<a href='http://evilwebsite.com'>Friendly Website</a>
Into something like:
So you can more easily tell where a link is pointing.
