Just setup Spam Assassin once, and it works for all of the emails on your account.
Spam Assassin will mark your spam so it is easy to notice.

You can use Spam Box to move the spam from your Inbox to a SPAM folder on the server, so it won't be delivered to your computer. 

Spam Box can be set up by clicking on the 'Enable Spam Box' option on the Spam Assassin screen.

Spam Box will deliver any emails identified as spam by SpamAssassin into a separate mail folder named "spam".  This "spam" folder will fill up and should be emptied regularly. The Spam Box can only be checked by logging into webmail, and your desired webmail program must be setup to see the spam box (instructions below).
