SpamAssassin just tags spam - you'd need to use procmail or something
like it to move mail into different directories depending on the
X-Spam-Level and/or X-Spam-Status headers.

The spamassassin config lives in /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin, and
the spamassassin site has lots of documentation.

See for
more information about filtering spam into different directories.
