Add-on [PAID] Hide e-mail address in post content

We're running an old forum which has some e-mail addresses posted as plaintext in forum posts, and I'd like to filter these from appearing to guests (so they they aren't harvested by spambots).
I've found a regex that should find any e-mail address (http://www.regular-expressions.info/email.html), so it should be possible to scan posts for this and then replace with something else (i.e. "(e-mail address removed)").

If you're a coder, please PM me a quote for how much it would cost to code this addon :). All I need is a simple addon to replace e-mail addresses in posts with a removal message (a little like the censored words function - but for an e-mail regex).

Thanks for that link - I tried running it, but I got HTTP 500 errors when trying the regex :( (or indeed even plaintext).

Ideally, I'd like to have the plugin run in realtime like the censor filter - so that it will not alter the text in the DB, only as it is displayed.
