Don't post your email address in a public forum, it will only attract spammers. If you want people to email you ask them to and post your address in your user profile (if you haven't already). Only registered users may access that area, so no spammers are likely to get your address from there, while anyone wanting to email you from the forum can.

About lightbox, there are many scripts that make lightbox type effects. The current versions on DD are:

and:

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/lightbox2/index.htm

But the author has a newer version:

There is also:

and there are numerous other imitators like slimbox, thickbox, etc. Google:

Lightbox Clones

to find many of them.


This does complicate things a bit, but also presents you with just about any option or bundle of options you might want in such a script. Pick one, and follow its installation instructions.
