Just for self. Outlook clients that connect to Exchange
is a per-user/system configuration and is not globally set.
I just happened to set it up in this way and stuck with
it ever since. Note however, that you can create exchange
"rules" so that new email arrivals can be automatically
moved from "Inbox" into your pre-defined "boxes". It just
makes it easier for me to categorize/organize inbound email

No, it is not due to "ms ex 6" exclusively - it was setup
arbitrarily as explained earlier.
