Evolution mail client


How do I setup evolution so that the message on the server is not deleted until I actually delete it.

IOW, I want the message to stay on the server until deleted.

POP3 or IMAP?

Evolution set it up as IMAP but it's a POP account. I don't know how to change it.

In the POP3 settings, make sure that "Leave Messages on Server" is selected.

See Step 7 at this link: http://www.zawebhosting.co.za/page/evolution

Most POP3 clients have a setting of this type buried somewhere. In some, you can select how long to leave the messages on the server after you have downloaded them. When the deadline comes, the mail client deletes them.

Some mail server providers don't do IMAP for home use accounts. My ISP is one of them.
