Leave messages on Pop3 server using Exchange

I have a client that is using Exchange on Windows 2000 SBS. He wants to be able to retrieve his e-mails from his laptop while he is on the road. It appears to me as though Exchange always deletes mail from the Pop2 server after it has been downloaded. Is there a way to configure Exchange to leave messages on the server for a period of time as I can through the Outlook client?

Is that a feature of Windows 2000 SBS or just Windows 2003 SBS?
