Not sure about adjusting the indexing - that will probably take some
modification of the Source; however, the email address munging is fairly
easy to accomplish via a separate script that is kicked off by cron.
This is especially easy if all you want to do is replace any occurance
of "@" with "%40":
   sed 's/@/.a.t./g' filenam > filenam.rm_at
