I use the following macro in mutt (put this line in .muttrc) to use # as a
shortcut for sending mail to spam@trap and save it in =spam, and have a few
friends doing the same.

macro index \# "bspam@trap^mys=spam^m"

\#        gives # as the shortcut
b         bounce to
spam@trap the address
^m        enter   
s         save
=spam     save folder
^m        enter
