Pop downloads and stores your emails on your computer. It does not replicate your web-based folder setup. This has to be re-created and sorted manually in your outlook account. Emails are available even when offline.

IMAP emails are stored on the mail server (not downloaded). Your folder setup are replicated through Outlook just as you see it when accessing it through your browser.

Also, in Outlook, unless you say differently in the Options, all email will go to the Inbox. That is completely normal.

You move into folders manually or via Outlook Rules. But that is a second step (although Rules can automate the process making it look like one).
