I don't think it counts as the middle if you have access to the email

If I've got your logon info, and I'm accessing your account that way,
it's no longer invisible when I try to quickly delete the original
message and throw up a fake replacement.  You might see a message hit
the inbox, get deleted, and see a similar one pop up from your mail
client.  And if you reply to the forged message, I can't stop that from
going out into the world to trick the other party.
