Blackberry and Exchange 2007 OWA

I sucessfully setup my blackberry devices to check email through OWA. However the blackberry's are "stealing" the messages from OWA and I cannot find and option to "leave a copy". Is this possible or is using POP the best way to get aroung this?

If you are using your Blackberry to access OWA directly from the OWA website, you are logged into the mailbox the same way you would be from a Desktop outlook client.  If you delete messages, the deletion behaves the same way it would from Outlook-- the message goes away.

In order to preserve messages on your Blackberry, you will either need to use POP access or the Blackberry Enterprise service configured accordingly.
You can use the Blackberry Internet Service. It uses OWA to check your email and forwards to your blackberry. It should have come with your device. If you are with Verizon goto, Sprint: and so on.

I did not delete the email form the blackberry. The message is gone from OWA as soon as the blackberry device is updated.

I did us Blackberry Internet service to use OWA. I tested this serveral times and when I send a message from and outside e-mail is shows up in OWA for a few seconds and when the Blackberry device updates it disapears from OWA. A copy is NOTleft behind.
There should be an option on the Blackberry Internet Server to leave mail in the box.  Which provider are you using?
