    Never had this issue before, but now when I let a new message go into mail app on the computer, and I delete it from my droid, it is also deleting the email from the MacBook mail app.

    That depends on what mail service you're using. In the case of GMail - because of the way GMail works I would expect this to happen since it's a "live" view of the mailbox on both devices. Are you working with GMail or some other mail service? What kind of connection is the mail server?

    I am utilizing POP and IMAP. I see in Gmail settings that auto Expunge is ON, to immediately delete from server. Should I turn Auto Expunge OFF ("wait for client to update the server") ? I am a senior citizen and this is all Greek to me LOL.

    Welcome to Android Central! If you want to keep an email in Gmail, then don't delete it. It won't take up any significant space on your phone, assuming you're using the Gmail app. There's no need to download your emails to your phone or computer for safekeeping -- just leave them on the server. I would suggest organizing your Gmail folders so that it doesn't get so cluttered, though.
