Moving spam e-mail to a special Phoenix Mail junk folder

E-mails classified as spam will get a tagged subject line. The tag is *** CACTUS SPAM *** and can be used to automatically move such e-mail into a junk folder. I’ve not been able to set up such a rule in Phoenix Mail, if somebody out there knows how to do this, please let me know.
