Exclude my addresses

I was annoyed that my name cropped up in every PDF I saved, so I made Address Book forget which record is mine. Now I get spam from myself.

Is there a way to tell SpamSieve explicitly which addresses not to let through?

Address Book always had only my primary address, anyway. How about using the account settings from Apple Mail to get them all?

How about telling Address Book which card is yours, but not putting your name on it?

There’s a command to update the address book based on the Apple Mail account settings.

Why didn’t I think of that? Thank you!

But it turns out I misremembered. PDFContext uses the full name of your OS account. I probably removed my card because some application was phoning it home. So it’d be great if there was a full workaround. I know it’s somewhat esoteric.

SpamSieve 2.8.8 enhances the Exclude my addresses feature so that you can add additional addresses without putting them in Address Book.
