Are you talking about IMAP or POP3 - they behave differently. With POP 
each client location has to download and choose to keep original on 
server, otherwise only one client can see the email. With IMAP one has 
the option to see the headers and by default leaves the server as the 
master. This does put more traffic on an IMAP server as a rule, but I 
use IMAP in preference if possible so that I can access emails via my 
iPhone and my T-bird clients, but only deal with mail once.
