How do I filter Spam into a spam folder in Cpanel?

I am trying to setup spam filter on Cpanel that forwards spam into a specific folder that I want to create for spam. I am new to Cpanel and not sure where to create the folder that the spam can be forwarded to, and I also need to know how to setup spam filtering as well. I have tried to set a filter blocking anything with a specific word in the "from" field, but when I test it it says it will delivre normally. I can get it to filter things in the body but nothing ever stays the same in the body on spam. Even email addresses change, I want to block the header name in front of the email address as they use that as the same thing consistently. Any thoughts? Thanks for the help.

    I'm running Cpanel I was able to figure out where to create the folder to forward spam into through the filter. I was also able to setup some filters successfully, but I am still unable to filter through the "from" field. We are getting spam that have nothing in body and the spam info is in the "from" field before the email address. (I.E. "ENLARGEMENT SPAM ETC. <>") and we want to filter those but unable to. When I select "From" > "Contains"> Enlargement> Move To Folder> Spam and then test it I get that it will be sent normally. If I test just using "Body instead of "from" fields then it will work. I hope this all makes sense. ALSO I want to setup Spamassassin but I cannot find it in my cpanel.
