Use qmail & spamassassin to move spam to different mailbox

I use spamassassin & qmail on a GoDaddy hosted virtual server w/Plesk control panel.

Spamassassin does a good job of putting "*****SPAM*****" in the subject lines of spams. While that's great, it doesn't solve the problem for my BlackBerry, which still gets tons of spam e-mails (with the marking in the subject line).

What I want to do is move the spam emails out of the recipients inboxes and place them in the inbox of a new user to be called spam@[mydomain.com]. How do I do this?

There's already a thread on this topic at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Internet_Email/Email/Anti_Spam/Products/Spam_Assassin/Q_22709846.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+qmail+spamassassin#a19533151 but the answers are gobbledygook. I'm somewhat tech savvy but don't know all the ins and outs of gmail. Is there a simple, straightforward answer on how to do this?

Hi, I assume that you are using the BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) so all you need to do is either logon to the BlackBerry web client, or use "Email Settings" from the device to create a filter.  In the filter settings just create a new item and configure it to DO NOT FORWARD if the subject line contains "*****SPAM*****".  This will stop spam being sent to your device.
