It may well not, but it can't hurt.

One would hope so, but I often get bounce messages from places that I
(supposedly) sent spam to.  Obviously, it was sent with a faked From:
address.  Also with a non-existent recipient address, even though the
domain is valid.  Many places seem to check the To: first and send a
bounce, rather than test for spaminess first, and silently drop stuff.
IDK which system is best, since each has its advantages.

There's no telling which category any given email provider falls into,
unless you do your own.
