milter is new to me, but if it helps, I don't think NOT is possible in
regex (is that a double negative?), the closet you can get to it is
something like:


although I think some brackets may be required to ensure each letters
are matched. Often the language allows one to place a not in front of
the regex:

if( !preg_match( '/^Edward$/' ) ) { ... }

milter looks interesting, I would previously have done such things in a
script inside a .qmail file, but this looks like an efficient way.
