SpamBayes doesn't do anything at all with outgoing mail, so the problem
isn't there.  (To demonstrate this, send mail to those addresses (checking
that they're identical) from some other mail client, and you'll see the same

My best advice would be to read the bounce message - it should tell you
*why* it bounced, and that should give you a clue as to what to do about it
(check the email address, wait for them to clear space in their mailbox, try
again later, ...)
