I'm confused, since my post addresses both scenarios. Again, if you want the Emails to remain on the server after you download them, then check the "Leave messages on server" checkbox. If you want to delete Emails on the server after downloading them locally, then uncheck the "Leave messages on server" box.
The issue here is that you need to tell the *server* how to handle your Email while you are in the process of downloading it, and your only options are either to delete it keep it. Once you've downloaded an Email to your local machine, any subsequent actions to you take locally (eg, clicking "Trash" or whatever) are invisible to the server, ie, one cannot assume an Internet connection at the time a user clicks on the "trash" icon
