I haven't been able to find any way to keep my pop3 emails on my S3, once they are deleted from the server, the stock app deletes them from the phone. If someone knows a way to keep them from deleting, I am all ears.
Alternatively, is there an app that will download the emails and not delete them when they are wiped from the server. I intend to run it without notifications turned on, which, if I am thinking correctly, will result in my current emails being in the stock app, while the 3rd party app will have all my emails, which I could access as needed.
Leaving the emails on the server is not an option.
