Who? Someone who doesn't run software or view media that is e-mailed
to him unless he has specifically requested the file. Such a person
then saves the file and manually scans the file. This someone
probably also uses an off-brand e-mail client that doesn't have a
history of being targeted for security flaws.
Or, as Winter suggested, a Gmail user, or someone who filters with
Gmail. Have mail that is sent to your personal domain address
forwarded to a Gmail account where it gets filtered for spam and
other naughtyness. Then forward your Gmail address to your secondary
"private" address at your personal domain. The private address is the
one you use on a daily basis. When you write e-mails, have them
configured to look like they come from your public address at your
personal domain. Log into Gmail once a week to check the spam filter.
