Looks like MS decided it was SPAM and forwarded the message to 
spam at test.com...

Now, could you answer the following questions:

>>What are your values for:
>>Spam Actions =
>>High Scoring Spam Actions =
>>Non Spam Actions =
And could you modify your MS config this way?

>>How about adding some verbosity to your MS setup?
>>Detailed Spam Report = yes
>>Include Scores In SpamAssassin Report = yes
>>Always Include SpamAssassin Report = yes
>>Log Spam = yes
>>Log Non Spam = yes  (beware it can produce a lot a output)

You could also run MS in debug mode (look for Debug = near the end of 
MailScanner.conf) to get a trace of what's going on.
