You haven't stated what type of account you're using: POP or IMAP (or
something else entirely).  Evolution already supports leaving downloaded
messages on a POP server for X number of days.

But from what you describe it sounds like you're trying to use a POP
account (where messages are downloaded from a mail server to a single
computer -- best suited for dial-up or intermittent network connections)
like it's an IMAP account (where messages are left on the mail server
and manipulated through one or more mail client programs -- best suited
for broadband or other "always-on" network connections).

If that's the case you'd be better off using IMAP directly.

In any case, evolution-l...@gnome.org is a better place for these types
of questions.
