How can I use (outlook/thunderbird/XYZ) and webmail without losing messages?

You can use both a email client on your phone or PC and use webmail at the same time without “downloading” mail to your local email client. This method is called IMAP and is fully supported.

Palace-Designs Email supports  POP (downloading of email), IMAP (keep mail in sync) and SMTP (sending mail).

Just change your settings in your email client to use IMAP instead of POP
