If you have another computer that downloads email and removes it from the server you will want to change the settings so that it will leave a copy of email on the server for 5-14 days. POP downloads email to the phone which is what most computers using Outlook or Thunderbird do by default. Leaving a copy on the server for a while gives the phone a chance to see the email before it is removed by the computer – typically 5 days is ample. IMAP works with copies of what is on the server so 14 days is typically more appropriate than a shallow 5 day view of your email.
