Deleting emails off of my phone only

Can I delete emails off of my phone only and leave emails on other phones

Re: Deleting emails off of my phone only

If you are using the IMAP protocol on all of the devices, the default is that anything you do to an email on one device also obtains for the same message on all the others.  The only way to do what you are describing would be to use POP3, which will cause a lot of other issues when the same account is enabled across multiple devices.
