newbie.gif alert

I have internal email server acting as smpt/pop relay.
inside and outside domains are both

One of the users must have the ability to re-download all emails from her home PC.
Right now, after being downloaded by pop3links, the messages from the host are gone. Is it possible to tell pop3links to leave a copy on the host's server so when user comes home, can download her messages again?
Thanks all!

Edit - unless I am wrong on the answer below...
Argh, sorry, should have searched deeper, the default is 30 days or newer.
Answer is
You cannot use pop3links for that. Use fetchmail with option --keep instead:

Scheduled message purging is not part of the POP3 specification and requires some custom programming, which imitates the behavior of a mail client.
