    I have researched thoroughly and do not have the option 'never' or 'delete only from device' when it comes to deleting emails from my phone. It also deletes from the server. Galaxy 4 note. Can't seem to figure this out if anyone knows? Should I switch from imap to pop3 which is what my last phone used and worked fine from the app?

    Welcome to Android Central!

    Which email service are you using? If you're using standard GMail, then Archiving instead of deleting is your easiest route.

    If you are using POP3 and if you turn on the option to "leave on server", you should be able to delete from your phone while not deleting from the server.

    Would I be correct in assuming that you want to be able to download the messages again to your desktop computer regardless of what you do with the messages on your phone?

    You can't "change", you have to delete the POP3 email account on the phone, then create an IMAP account (for the same email box).
