Will the USPTO accept a foreign correspondence address and correspond with a foreign inventor?

I couldn't find anything that says they won't.  Licensed practitioners can, and do, have foreign addresses with which the PTO corresponds.  If you want a definitive answer, try the Inventors Assistance Center:
http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/pac/dapp/pacmain.html  (No, I'm never to proud to contact them for help.  They're very knowledgeable (former SPEs and PEs) and very helpful.  And, I've never had any trouble getting through.)

I will retract that statement.   They are very helpful.   I think I just posted after being on hold for 15 minutes.  Then after an answer, "inventors assistance center," I replied and heard no other response.  However, the phone did not hang up, so I yelled for a bit.  When that didnt work, I sat and listened to them talk about traveling and vacationing around the United States.  Mainly on the east coast.  It actually was pretty informative because I have been meaning to hit those same spots as soon as some time opens up.
