Make iPhone Mail delete email from a POP3 server

iPhone Mail can be set so that it deletes from the server automatically after downloading. This is done one of two ways according to your preferences set on the iPhone. The messages are removed from the POP3 server when you remove them from your iPhone's inbox or the other option is to keep copies of all messages on POP3 server and remove them a week after downloading. The choice is largely down to your own preferred practices.
