Does the IMAP Mailbox app delete email from the server after retrieval?

Once the IMAP Mailbox app retrieves an email from the server, does the app delete the email from the in-box? If so, is this configurable to any degree? i.e. all/none delete or delete only from certain email addresses...

By default it does, and it also supports disabling it.

See imap.conf in the app.

#
# deleteWhenDone
#
# If true will delete messages from mailbox after indexing.
# Should note that deteleWhenDone overrides any caching and assumes that each time 
# the script gets called all messages in the inbox are new.
#
# I have noticed if you do not delete mail. Checking for mail can get extremely slow.

deleteWhenDone = True  <- default setting
