Inbound and Outbound interface confusion



I thought I understood what Outbound and Inbound interface meant in XI, but then I read some other statements and now I am confuse. Can somebody please explain me.

I know that Sender sends message to Outbound interface and the Integration engine sends the message to Inbound inteface before it goes to Reciever.

I hope I understand it right.

But today I saw this statement, which got me confused :

"The sender agreement is used on the intergration server for inbound processing, the receiver agreement for outbound processing"

The above statement doesn't make sense to me because Outbound interface is for sender and Inbound interface is for receiver.
