I think I've got this working (once I worked out that what I need to do 
is delete the [x] part). Thanks!

I manually coded the conditions as a smart mailbox for testing, and 
naturally I tried opening its conditions in the GUI to see what would 
happen. The number of messages in the smart mailbox changed as I did so, 
indicating that the conditions had changed; but when I closed MailMate 
and checked the smart mailbox's definition in Mailboxes.plist, it seemed 
unchanged, which is strange to me. Did I miss something?

Somewhat on the same topic, what does the '[c]' condition mean? I have 
some smart mailboxes defined with the condition "[From] [contains] 
[me at example.com]" in the GUI , but when I inspect their definitions in 
Mailboxes.plist, some have "from ~ 'me at example.com'" and others have 
"from ~[c] 'me at example.com'", even though the conditions are shown 
identically in the GUI.
