No, an INBOX is simply a mailbox. It's a place that you can deliver email
to, and read email from. With the right delivery agent, it's possible to
deliver email to any mailbox, so there's nothing particularly special about
the INBOX except that it's the default mailbox.
It would be a bit stupid to deliver email to a place that you can't read
it, or vice versa.

So, now we have to say "In POP3 this gets a bit blurred as the Outlook
inbox is also a mechanism for receiving new mail". Heck, wherever you read
the email, it got delivered there by some means.
