I think you misunderstood the feature (better naming might help). You
were only supposed to create 1 smart mailbox, for example, matching any
messages arriving within the last hour (we'll name it “One Hour”).
You can place/hide this mailbox wherever you want. Since it should be
based on “All Messages” then it could just be a child of that
Then this mailbox could be chosen for any other mailbox as “Displayed
Count ▸ Also in Mailbox ▸ One Hour”.
The advantage of this approach is that you can have any number of custom
counts and you have all of the flexibility of conditions available when
defining the counts.
Does that make (better) sense?
