First: Both are OK. 2) is the more usual way to say it.
Second: 1) "in the ... box" is the correct one. A box can hold things. The things it holds are "in" it.

The e-mail was held in ----'s inbox.

Of course you could use the word hold. People all over the world keep their mail in mail boxes. Why do you want to use an ambiguous word?

Yes, relating to and related have a similar menaing in such contexts, as far as I am concerned.
