A long while ago this used to be an option but I believe it was since removed. There may be some third party clients, depending on the mail account, that still allows this.


 


Are you asking in general or is there a specific account type you want this for?

Try K9 mail. It does what you want plus much more and it is free. I have tried just about all of them, and this one has too many features to list here and is very stable. Regularly updated by Dev's and responsive to issues (although I have never had any).


Will handle multiple and different types of e-mail accounts. Can use several or universal in boxes, different ring-tones for different accounts. etc...

@ cloud


If you try to 'auto' setup, then you will not get this option. Try the manual setup option and you can select the option to keep the email on the server. Please note that this option is only available for POP3 email account. With IMAP and Exchange sync is always maintained. POP is 'only a download' protocol. Try this out and let us know how that works out. Thank you.

I set my accounts up manually, and the setting can be found here - not sure if this is hidden for automatic setup or not:


open email program -> gear icon (settings) -> select account -> scroll to bottom for "Incoming server" ->scroll to bottom for "delete email from server" and change to never
