I just had a brain wave. Currently I filter my email by checking to see if you are in my address book. This however has problems when people are CC’d on emails because when they reply the cc’d people are not in my address book so get dumped in my junk folder. Now the brain wave is that junk mail will never have your fullname as part of the email, in my case “Ian Macdonald”. However it is quite likely that personal mail will have the full name because they took your email from their address book. So I when I get some time I am going to update my filters so that it will allow email with “Ian Macdonald” in to To: or the CC: field. Tada!
