not deleting email on the mail server


not deleting email on the mail server

If I set my email (pop3) client to download email from the plusnet mail server, but to not delete the email from the server, what happens to the emails left on the server?

Do they stay there forever?
- if so, is there a limit? what is the limit? will further emails after that limit be bounced back to senders and not delivered to the email server?

Do they get deleted automatically after a default time?
- if so, how long do they remain?

Without using my email client, how would I delete any emails from the server?
