Sounds like a personal problem ;-)

My .muttrc highlights my own posts (bright cyan) in index view, and
notes posts in response to or mentioning my name (easier for me than
some folk) (cyan).  So my posts and any replies/references stand out.

Hrm.  Talk to your local listaholics anonymous yet?

You can accomplish this by setting the "Reply-To" header of your own
posts.  Though some lists will strip and/or rewrite this (considered
harmful, GIYF).
