There are 2 thresholds built-in, with different sets of actions for mail
exceeding each of the 2 thresholds.
If you want more than 2 thresholds, you can implement it very simply using
a Custom Function in

2 thresholds is enough for most people.
So you would need to set

Required SpamAssassin Score = 5
High SpamAssassin Score = 10
Spam Actions = deliver
High Scoring Spam Actions = delete
Spam Modify Subject = yes
Spam Subject Text = {Spam?}
