The IMAP protocal is designed to store your mail on the Server only.  If you remove the mail from the server, it will be removed from your Outlook as well.

Outlook2003 is using IMAP to do this scenario you can use Outlook Express with POP3 configuration..!

It cannot be done in OUtllok 2003 or at server end.

It can be done only by POP3 using Outlook Express
