All server stored mailboxes with an Exchange or IMAP account are kept synchronized with the server with each email client used to access the account.
There is no setting in Outlook or with the iPhone's Mail app to prevent this. This by design and intention with an Exchange or IMAP account.

The blackberry had an easy setting to do this by choosing 'conflict override by computer' or similar so that exchange folders could be used and email on the mobile phone could be deleted while it remained on the computer for storage and reduced clutter on the mobile. So it is possible and just cannot be done on the iPhone. I have just switched from blackberry to iPhone and It not the only 'business unfriendly' issue I have found.

It is also very hard to type on the keypad especially when the iPhone tries second guessing what I want to write!! Need to turn off autocorrect.....

It is possible with a Blackberry due to RIM's dedicated email delivery service. The Blackberry's email client does not communicate direct with the Exchange Server with an Exchange account or direct with the incoming mail server with any email account.
It is not possible with an email client that communicates direct with the Exchange Server such as with the iPhone's email client, with the Android email client, and with the Windows mobile email client. This is possible with the Blackberry's email client and dedicated email delivery service only which is going out of business unless RIM ends up being purchased by another company.
