You miss the point entirely.  I was not talking about INBOX here, I was 
talking the draft, sent mail, etc folder.  Inbox is not a convention; 
it's a reserved mailbox name in the IMAP protocol.  You _can't_ 
configure which folder to use as Inbox, and it would make no sense 
anyway.  So the point is not about choosing in which folder you access 
incoming mail (you can't), it is about how we display a constant.

Talking about convention, the closest thing we have to a convention is 
to display INBOX localized as "Boîte de réception" in French.
