Gee, I started getting spam over 10 years ago, welcome to the club.

I don't think there is any simple way to remove your email address from 
an archived message, and even if you could, that would not remove it 
from any spammer lists you have managed to get on.

There is a reason that anti-spam applications are so popular. Look into 
the various methods available both on the server side and to work with 
your MUA.

Some people use a separate email address for posting to mailing lists, 
but that can defeat the purpose if you want to follow the list.

Spam is a pervasive problem, not easily solved with a request such as 
yours. It's a sad fact, but a fact nonetheless.
