    Is there anything on the server that would cause downloaded mail from being removed from the server? I have an account that uses Outlook Express to download mail but the 'leave messages on server' option is not enabled.

    Go on, have a guess
    Well, the POP3 protocol always errs on the side of caution and will not honour DELE requests unless the POP3 connection is closed properly (with a successful QUIT command). You usually see such problems when either you or the server has a dodgy internet connection that is dropping packets/excessively slow. I guess it could also happen if you're very close to your site disk quota since most POP3 servers make a copy of the mailbox file during a POP3 session with a client.
