Best Way To Scan a Site for E-Mail

One of the sites I did recently, apparently still has my e-mail address embedded somewhere which after a little digging I can't find. Are there any programs that can scan entire sites, looking for forms or other links that may lead to e-mail addresses? I want to fix and point to the right direction, but I can't find :p
As NetRyder mentioned something like this would work on a *nix machine

webhost$ cd /path/to/the/website
webhost$ grep -rin -E "[a-zA-Z0-9._%-]+@([a-zA-Z0-9-]+\.)+[a-zA-Z]{2,4}" *
That will do a recursive (goes down the dir tree) and case insensitive search though the regexp is already case insensitive and will also tell you what line of the file the regex matches. The * at the end tells it to search all files and folders in the current directory.

Nah, I have a Microsoft Server :)

The site is relatively small, I guess I could do a CTRL + F through the code was just trying to be lazy :eek:

Thanks though guys, I'll post back this weekend when I give it a shot.
