No, not right.

Each of the 4 radio buttons on the icon on the left side selects a 
distinct set of Counter settings on the right side. Each of the 4 
Counters specifies a single mailbox, a selected type of message being 
counted, and the notification mechanisms, including what sound to play 
when the count changes.

That Preferences pane has been confusing MM users for a decade. I 
understand why Benny did it that way, as it makes sense from a coding 
point of view. I don't have any brilliant ideas for a different way to 
present the functionality that isn't mystifying.
