I absolutely challenge you to prove that the above bolded statement is a "bug". Most, if not all standard pop-mail clients have a "leave mail on server" feature that will download the new email but let another pop-3 client come in and remove them. The non-removing email clients then hit the server and see that there aren't any headers there, so they remove the email from it's local store. That's how I've operated for years (20+) with ALL my pop-3 accounts and devices, ranging from Outlook Express, Outlook, Yahoo pop-email, Palm based email clients, third party Palm email clients, and many more.

They're burning down the house to get rid of the mouse in this case, where other improvements in other areas would help battery life more than actually removing functionality and making their email pop-3 client non-standard.
