Given it's a domain you control and not some Yahoo address, SPF and DKIM are your friends when it comes to saying 'this really is genuine mail from this domain'. What server are you using to send? Without DKIM, it's difficult to email places like Yahoo - if only they put as much effort into stopping spammers use them / harvest address books from there as they do in trying to stop people email them.

Greylisting filters out more than 99% of spam for me. The mail server says 'sorry, not ready at the moment' to everyone who's not successfully emailed me before. When they try again after a few minutes, mail is accepted. What makes it work is that real email servers do try again as the rules say that they must, but virtually all spammers don't bother because that would slow down the rate at which they send it.

The problems come when it's somewhere in the middle: a useful address that you don't control being spoofed. I just use Gmail to collect it from the third party server and use its spam filtering.
