The “Not Junk” flag is only set if explicitly set by the user. So 
matching on things not marked as Junk (via SpamSieve) means that you 
should use “Keywords do not include Junk”.

But I’m not sure why you would need the keywords at all. If you base 
the smart folder on “Inbox” and “Sent Messages” and then a 
single condition with “Date is within last 1 days” then I think you 
have what you want. At least if junk mail has been moved to the Junk 
mailbox as it should be.

If you also want to include messages you have archived (or moved to 
other mailboxes) then you can base the smart mailbox on “All 
Messages” since that does not include messages in the Junk mailbox 
(and “Deleted Messages”) by default.
