3. Now click on More Settings and select the Advanced tab

Place tick in Leave a copy of messages on server. You are then given the option of leaving it on for a specified period of time. This is optional. You can also choose to delete mail from the server when you delete the mail on your machine, again this is optional.

4. Note: Madasafish recommends that you remove downloaded emails from the server at least once every 7 days or you may utilise the full POP3 mail box space. New mail will not be delivered if you mailbox is full. You will however receive and email informing you that your mailbox is approaching full when it reaches 75% full.
