That's exactly what I want to be able to do.  Usually my workflow is to delete 
all emails off of the server, it is just the nature of emails, most of them 
after I have read and replied are not important anymore.  However for those 
10-20 emails a week, I want to leave them on the server and then download 
them at night to the home computer.

Take today, I was using my n810 all day at work, receiving say 60 emails, I 
read them, deleted them and use to be done.  I come home tonight, open my 
home email, download them all again, go through them and now I have to 
selectively delete them out of my "real" email begin careful not to get to 
excited about pressing the delete key.

The old way was just completely better.
