Exists a mail-client for Fedora, that can read local mail file without deleting?
 
Hello,

On my Fedora Core 1 I have found multiple mail-clients (Evolution, KGet and KMail). On my system I have fetchmail to retrieve mail, which stores the mail in /var/spool... I use this in combination with squirrelmail, so i can acces the mail from out of home. But when I am at my home I would like to use a "normal" mail client such as Evolution or other. But both Evolution, KGet and KMail, seems to delete the messages from the /var/spool/mail/user file when the mails are retrieved. I dont want that! Because i still want to be able to access all the mails from outside my home, using squirrelmail. Is there some mail client I can use with Fedora (with GUI), that can read mail rom the /var/spool.. file without deleting the contents of it? Its ok if they use IMAP, because i have the imap deamon running (for squirelmail). All the before mentioned e-mail clients also support imap, but there is no option for "Do not delete meesage from server" or similar.

Most mail clients have an option somewhere to "leave messages on server" (at least I thought....) Thunderbird has such an option, but by default it also takes them off.
