    Are you using the stock e-mail app? If so, then go to Settings and click on your account. Under "Incoming Settings," switch "delete e-mails from server" to "never."

    I'm not having this problem, but just out of curiosity I looked in setting. I could not see that option in settings.

    I have att i777 have not upgraded to 4.0. Maybe that is why I can't find it. :-)

    1. Click the menu button for Settings.

    2. Under "Added Accounts," select the account that's at issue. General preferences will not have the needed option.

    3. On the window that appears, "Incoming Settings" is second from the bottom.

    4. "Delete e-mail from the server" is at the bottom of the next window with an options list that includes "never."

    As far as I can remember, it has been the same on my phone through the upgrades.

    Same problem with MotoG. The server setting is set at "Never", but the emails at my server are deleted when I delete them from the phone.(Which I do not want)
