    However, this is not what's happening when I use IMAP on my Pre. If I delete it on the Pre, I cannot get it on my home computer later on. It's gone.
    Um... no, that's not what I said, nor is it what I'm saying. When you use IMAP, and you delete an email, it is deleted from the server. That deletion is then synchronized to your other IMAP clients, and deleted there as well.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. My meaning was that it leaves the email on the server even after the client receives the email (as opposed to POP, where the email is typically deleted once it's delivered to the client). It doesn't leave it there forever. When the client (any of the clients) deletes the email, it's deleted at the server.
