HTML Entities to hide Email Addresses

I'm on WordPress trying to keep spambots from grabbing email addresses that may be in The Content. WordPress has a nifty little function simply called antispambot() which will convert the email address into HTML Entities.

no-reply@domain.com converts to:

no-reply@domain.com

This function has been around for a LONG time and I'm sure the method has been around for longer so my question is: Is this still a valid way to beat spambots? Will this method still fool spambots and keep said email safe?
