This indicates that SpamSieve thought the message was good because the sender address was in your address book, and you had configured SpamSieve to always classify such messages as good. To catch these spam messages you would need to turn off Use Mac OS X Address Book or adjust the contents of your address book.

All of these hundreds of messages are spoofing that email address so they appear to come from our corporate email address

I suppose I could delete our email address from our address book…

Matthew Therrien

If it’s your own address, you could simply add it to your card in Address Book.

Got it - thanks for the hyperlink tip Michael!

Yep that cracked it!
