root@test.com is not an email address!
The part after the @ sign must be the host name of the server to which you want to copy the public key. Of coure, it must exist in DNS. If it doesn't, you can also use the IP address, e.g.
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub root@

Yes... you haven taken it slightly to literally... you need to substitute your server address for "test.com".
