    It's still on the server.

    Delete the mail from the server.

    > Menu/ Mail/ Preferences.

    > Click the Accounts tab.

    > Select the mail account you wish to change the settings of.

    > Click the Advanced tab.

    > Select the "Remove copy from server after retrieving a message:" option and...

    > Choose time desired (immediately, one day, one week, etc.) from the menu.

    > Close Mail Preferences.

    Check if your email provider has IMAP to use instead of POP. Then make a new account on your Mail app with the IMAP settings.

    Caution: If you do't want to delete saved messages in Apple Mail, DON'T delete the POP account, just disable it.
