Look under:
tools
mail accounts
double click on the mail account
go to more settings
click the advanced tab
look at the bottom their will be a choice to check a box to leave messages on the server un-check those boxes.

Good luck.

That message means that your POP3 server doesn't support either the UIDL or
TOP POP3 commands, and therefore Outlook doesn't have a way to distinguish
between messages on the server in order to reliably leave them there. I see
three possibilities:

1) Your ISP's server periodically goes brain-dead and can't do UIDL or TOP.
That doesn't seem terribly likely to me, but it's possible.
2) There is a known timing-related bug in Outlook that can cause it to get
confused about just what the server supports. I've got a fix for it that I
hope to get into the next service pack, but I've only known it to happen
once before, and it didn't recur, so I wouldn't expect you to hit it as
often as you say you do.
3) You're getting some error (other than in 1 above) when we issue some of
the POP3 commands that makes Outlook come to the conclusion that your server
doesn't support UIDL or TOP, despite the fact that it does. I think this is
the most likely, but...

Could you turn on diagnostic logging (see
http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q300479) and post
the OPMLog.log files after the next time this occurs? The logs should allow
me to distinguish between the above possibilities
