RFC 3501, section 6.3.5:

    Renaming INBOX is permitted, and has special behavior.  It moves
    all messages in INBOX to a new mailbox with the given name,
    leaving INBOX empty.  If the server implementation supports
    inferior hierarchical names of INBOX, these are unaffected by a
    rename of INBOX.
