Another thing you can do if you want your email address to appear on your site is to make a small image with your address on it.
Depending on how you've made your contact form, you might still get spam through that. The spam bots can usually find the address the form sends to.
I do strongly recommend asking about getting SpamAssassin on your account. In some cases it's just a case of putting up a bunch of gates that the spam has to get through to reach you. I've seen people set up SpamAssassin to tag spam, a filter to delete mail marked as spam or definitely spam by SpamAssassin, and then forward it all to a Gmail account which will filter out any messages that sneak through, and then set Gmail up to forward it all back to a yourdomain.com address.
I'm not saying you need to go to these lengths. Just find something that works for you. You could also get around the no SpamAssassin problem by routing all your email through a Gmail account, which then forwards email back to a different yourdomain.com address. If I know Google, they'll have some pretty sophisticated spam filters on Gmail.
Get creative! And know that we all feel your pain ;)
