It may have something to do with passing through spamassassin, but I
don't think so because queue id 5C9BB541603 is the message after
spamassassin and it notes orig_to=<test at lists.my.dom>. However, I'm not
sure why the message is handled by Postfix's pipe module. That seems odd.

If you post the output of postconf -n, we may be able to help further.
