Anyone have any idea what that might mean, and if it's relevant?

to properly do any spam filtering evolution needs to download whole
message and pass it to the spam-detection software
(bogofilter/spamassassin). The error says that the message download
failed, though the reason ("junk-test") is rather misleading.

I suppose evolution console doesn't show anything useful, does it?

Can you run /usr/bin/bogofilter and pass to it a message content, which
is supposed to check whether the message is or is not a spam, reporting
it with the exit code? The command can be:

   $ /usr/bin/bogofilter <~/.local/share/evolution/mail/local/...

eventually with added argument --unicode=yes, if you have the convert
to unicode checked. You can also try to run evolution with:

  $ CAMEL_DEBUG=junk evolution

to get some debugging around the junk processing.
