That depends on your email system. For instance, Gmail removes it from the Inbox, but Gmail doesn’t delete email. Old email is always in your “All Mail” folder — actually it isn’t a folder, but it acts like one. Other email system may also trigger the Archive button in Mail, but do something different, like put the message in an “Archive” or “Saved” folder. It depends.
