Do you use conditional formatting to visually deprioritize emails you're CC'd on?

In your inbox, it's a good idea to reduce noise by giving more attention to emails where you're on the "To" field, and dim the ones you're CC'd on.

Figure: On these 2 emails... Subject "test" has recipient on "To:"; and subject "test 2" has recipient on "Cc:"

You can do this through 'Conditional formatting' in the 'View Settings', by creating a rule that changes the font of emails to grey if you’re in the 'CC' field.
