i am getting email(spam) in my bulk folder from my own e-mail address. How is this happening?

jas asked: i have had this same address since 1997. The email is getting diverted to my bulk via spam filter but my address is in my address book.

Will adding an email address to my address book keep it out of my spam folder?

Ryan C asked: Mail from a particular recipient that I trust is being filtered into my spam folder. Will adding them to my address book keep them from being marked as spam, or do I have to manually setup a filter?
For further clarification, the address is not listed under my blocked addresses.
