It doesn't save emails in individual files it saves emails in file for each folder, the Inbox in your image is the file where all your emails in inbox are saved, you can change the location by go to "Option"- "Account Settings" - "Server settings", on the server settings window you can see "Local Directory" section, brows to the folder you want to move location.
