User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 SUSE/3.5.2-2.1 Firefox/3.5.2
Build Identifier: 2.0.0.23 (20090817)

There's a setting under Account Settings/Junk Settings called "Do not mark mail as junk if the sender is in:" and then I get to choose *one* of my address books.

I categorize my contacts into separate address books. However, Thunderbird allows the user to select only one of these as trustworthy.  It would be better if I could choose one or more of my address books as trustworthy.  I don't want all my political contacts, work contacts, orgs, and govs in my personal list, but I do trust them not to send spam.

Please make it so we can select multiple address books as trustworthy senders.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Edit/Account Settings
2. Select "Junk Settings"
3. Only one address book is allowed under "Do not mark mail as junk if the sender is in:"


Expected Results:  
The UI should allow multiple address books to be selected, and the underlying software should honor those selections.

Lots of my email is miscategorized as spam, even though the senders are in my other address books.  It's tedious to have to create a special address book with dups of my trustworthy contacts that are already in my other address books.
This feature is already available in Thunderbird 3.0b4. 
Tb 2.0.0.x are mainly security releases and won't see this feature.
