How do I save emails on my desktop without them being linked across devices?

How do I save emails on my desktop without them being linked across devices?

Somehow my email got switched to imap.  I don't want my email linked across my devices!  I want to save email to my desktop, but be able to delete it from my phone.  I don't want all of my email folders that are on my desktop to be on the server and on my phone!  How do I fix this?  My phone can't handle all of my saved email!   I want to make sure that the email I have saved on my desktop is only accessible on my desktop.  I want to make sure if I delete something from the server or my phone that it does NOT delete from my desktop.  I need to be able to securely save some of my emails for reference without bogging down everything else!
