What, even if you tick "keep email on server" in your email client?

(aiui the syntax of a POP3 session is first of all to download what you 
want, and then delete what you don't want to keep on the server, so 
"keeping it on the server" is actually the simpler option.)

Some ISPs apparently delete the "kept" email after a set period 
(typically a month). This would be very high up on my list of reasons to 
avoid that ISP.

It's none of their business over-riding my decision to keep a copy. 
Unless it exceeds some sort of storage quota, but that should be 
measured in gigabytes these days.
