It is usually up to the client what they want to download, how many 
times they do it (a user may have different clients and may reconfigure 
them to drop and re-add an account, etc.), and when they delete from the 
server.  I'd be surprised if any servers strictly limit repeat 
downloads.  On the other hand, any sensible mail client will track the 
messages it already has and not download them again.  If something is 
doing it repeatedly it is probably broken.
