I understand your problem, but I'm not sure what version of IMP you
are using, which means I don't know if you are using the old IMP
filtering, or the new Ingo filtering.  And if you are using Ingo,
what backend you are using.

In either case, I thought you could define any filter you wanted by
going into the filters settings and setting it manually.  So, I would
think you would be able to do what you want.

Obviously the "blacklist" shortcut in IMP won't do it, since it will
enter the address, not the personal name only.  But you should be able
to do this manually, at least with Ingo.

Again, not sure of your setup (versions, etc) so I'd hate to guess.
Maybe I could look up your old messages to find out, but I'm pretty
lazy, so I wouldn't count on it...

This can be done with Ingo, as long as your mail server supports a
backend/setup that supports it.
