Assuming that this is a POP account, you can set mail to delete the messages from the server as they are downloaded, just leaving the copy on your computer.
It looks like IMAP accounts can do the same, just move the deleted messages to the local trash and save a copy to delete as you choose. Under the advanced tab there is a checkbox for leaving deleted mail on the server, that probably needs to be unchecked.
