No, you are not. There is no way to create such mailboxes in the GUI. 
You can either create a dummy smart mailbox (matching nothing) or quit 
MailMate and edit the following file:

	~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Mailboxes.plist

But take a backup copy first, because you could lose it if you make a 
mistake (although MailMate may make a copy if it cannot parse it -- 
cannot remember right now :-) ).

It may also be possible to duplicate the Examples mailbox if it is 
empty, but that is not exactly an intuitive workaround.

And I'll make yet another note that I should make this functionality 
available in the GUI.
