organize it into folders, search it, etc.

Sure, it the server has to pay for disk, but in a corporate setting,
one would pay for disk whether it's on a server or a desktop.  A
server, hopefully, would be backed up so you should lose mail if you
lose a system.

*OR* with IMAP you can download messages and delete them from the server just like with POP. I've always felt that IMAP just makes up for the deficiencies in POP -- it allows all the same activities, as well as so much more.
