    Is there a setting to delete mail off of the server when you delete it from your mac?

    I know you can go to advanced settings and remove email from the server after a set period of time by checking the box.

    But, what if I wanted to keep all email on the server unless I deleted it from mail? Is there a way to do that?

    For example, I have an account that gets spam. I'd like it to delete it from the server as soon as I delete it on my mac. But I don't want to delete emails immediately in case I need to pull it from another device for example.
