Httrack won't harvest email addresses (spamming.)  If a web page has a
address, so will the mirrored page.

However, some sites don't embed email addresses, they put links that open
forms.  A mirror is not a copy, forms will not work.

Also, Geo specific images, etc. will also be captured, but you probably don't
want them on the new site.

Finally links that go to other Geo users/locations you'll want to filter out
so you don't mirror them. I suggest you check No External Pages.  That way you
can find them and remove them later.
