From the forums:

Enter this macro and run it to rename the folder to Inbox:

Sub RenameInbox()
Dim oInbox As Outlook.MAPIFolder

Set oInbox = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI"). _
GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
oInbox = "Inbox"

Set oInbox = Nothing
End Sub

To enter the macro use Alt+F11 to open the VBA window. Use
Insert|Module to add a code module. Copy and paste in the code I
provided. Place the cursor in the code and press F5. Your Inbox should
be properly renamed after that.

_____________

Need to use EXCHNG32.EXE to rename the Inbox.
If you have upgraded from a previous version of Outlook, you may have the Exchng32.exe program on your hard disk. If this is the case, you can rename the Inbox by using this program.

Note: With a clean installation of Outlook 2000 on Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), you might not have the Exchng32.exe program.

To revert the mis-named Outlook Inbox folder to its original state, follow these steps:
After you close Outlook 2000, click Start, point to Run, type exchng32.exe, and then press ENTER.
In the left panel of the Exchange Client application, right-click on the mis-named folder, and then click Rename.
Type Inbox, and then press ENTER to rename the folder.
Close the Exchange Client application and restart Outlook.
To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).

To obtain SR-1/SR-1a, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

This problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1/SR-1a.

Renaming is enabled, but it just won't change.
