    Is there a way to delete messages on the Droid without deleting them on the email server? My Curve would allow me to do this. My wife and I use the same email, and she gets bombarded with mail that clutters my phone. BB made it easy to delete only on the handheld, but I don't see any such option on the Droid.

    yes i believe there is a way to do this. go to your email account, then account settings, then incoming settings, then set delete email from server to "never"

    I don't have the delete option when editing incoming settings.

    In order to select the otions to not delete for server your account type must me POP, you must manualy set this account up. On the incoming settings you will see the never delete email from server option.
