Something like this...
WITH T AS (
              SELECT
                ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY NumericValue) - NumericValue AS Grp,
                NumericValue
              FROM
                Sequence
             )
    SELECT
        MIN(NumericValue) AS [From],
        MAX(NumericValue) AS [To]
    FROM
        T
    GROUP BY
        Grp
    ORDER BY
        MIN(NumericValue)

Replace Sequence with DTE_Inbox.
Replace NumericValue with Folio.
