    I have too many emails that keep going into my junk folder. Is there a way to allow further emails from particular senders to go straight into the inbox ?

    Make sure this box is checked in Mail prefs then add the person to your Contacts and their email address will be exempt from junk filtering.

    Sorry weaselboy, on the same subject is there a way to stop junk mail from even getting into the junk folder and being blocked altogether? Cheers m8.

    you used to be able to tell the mail app that it was not junk and it would remember the address without having to add it to your contents. is that not possible with yosemite?

    Only if your mail provider has someway of doing that for you on the server side. But for most accounts like iCloud, that is not possible.

    You could change that Mail app setting to "Perform custom actions" in that same screen then click advanced and set it like this. That would just auto delete anything tagged as spam. The danger there is if you have a false positive, you would never know it.
