  16. A POP connection typically removes the email messages from the email server after you have downloaded new messages to your computer.  If you would like to leave copies on the server, check the Leave a copy of messages on server box. To avoid exceeding your account’s storage limits, indicate whether the server should delete messages after a certain number of days and/or delete messages when you manually delete them from the Deleted Items folder.
