No reason why not.

If you don't need the address to be hyperlinkable, you can put the user, @
and domain in different table cells. Or even put each letter in a
separate cell. Could even set the border, cellspacing and cellpadding to
0 to make it not look like a table.
While that deterrent isn't insurmountable, I suspect most, if not all,
harvesting programs don't go to that length.
