The URLEncode function does not encrypt strings -- it simply escapes certain characters, so that they can be included in a URL.  For example, the plus signs (+) at the end of the URL are spaces that were inlcuded in the original email address -- probably due to it being retrieved from a table.  I recommend using the TRIM function before using the email address.
 
By the way, you do not need to use URLDecode to decode strings returned by the Request object -- FoxWeb automatically does this for you.

I am using the code:
 
cOutput = Server.URLEncode(M.GEMAIL)
<a href="contact.fwx?aid=<%=cOutput%>">Contact</A>
 
While this is working correctly, in the browser's address bar I am getting:
 
 
On the receiving page, contact.fwx I use:
 
vid=Server.URLDecode(Request.ServerVariables("QUERY_STRING"))
 
All works well but why ins't myemail@mydomain.com also encoded? I would like for the value of the parameter var "aid" encoded as well to hide the client's email address.
