Automatically encodes email-addresses, just as it says. On the screen email addresses are openly shown to a human, while a bot cannot find an email-address there.
In the source code instead of the email address in plain text, each letter is written with its HTML character entity (number). Looks just the same when the browser displays it.
Also the link, which of course contains the email address, too, is encoded. By clicking on the link, it is decoded again, so the "mailto:"-link can be used as usual. For this javascript is used.
Because the email address is also openly shown to humans as text (if it is inserted between the tags of course), even someone, who has no javascript enabled or just wants to copy the email-address, can find the email-address and use it.

Protected emails--love it!
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's a well-designed and well-maintained plugin that I'm very happy I've found, because all my clients eagerly post their email addresses every chance they get, even though I've created contact forms for them. *Fight spam*

Seamless email encoding
By , for WP 3.4.2

At last, publishing email addresses is not a problem. I can forget all the tags and forget forgetting them - published mailto: links are all protected.

Solves the problem of well meaning post authors and commenters who want to share email address(es) to improve networking. With this plugin they can do it without the addresses they post being spammed! Awesome!
