Keeping POP3 emails on the phone
Just got a Arc S, and set up my POP3 email account on it. It works OK and downloads emails to the handset, and leaves them on the server.
So later on I can download all the emails on my PC using the Thunderbird email client. Great!
But when the emails are downloaded to my PC and deleted from the server, the emails also disappear from my Arc S. I might be wrong but I think that the Arc S may be "syncing" with the emails that exist on the POP3 server - so when there are no emails on the POP3 server there will be none on the Arc S aswell.
Sometimes when I'm away from home, one of the family may download the emails on the PC, and it's annoying to find that the emails on my phone have suddenly vanished - especially if I'd intended to reply to some them. I've got to be able to carry permanent copies of some emails on my Arc S.
What I really want is for the emails downloaded to the phone to stay there until I decide to delete them myself, and not to disappear when they get deleted from the POP3 server.
Is there any way to do this?
