Re: Google Nexus 5 - Stock Mail App empties inbox daily ??
Yeah, that's common behavior of POP account. Why bother with POP account these days. They are not good for anything related to mobile and sync.

If mails are not deleted from the server, it is very hard for mail client to determine which piece of mail is already downloaded or not without re-download them again to compare to local copy. That means wasted data usage and battery juicy. And the fact there is no push notification, your phone will have to check mail box at pre-configured interval even if there is no new mail. So, even more data usage and battery wasted.
