Is it possible on a smartphone (Moto X Play) to download e-mails on the phone and save them without removing them from the server and subsequently if they are removed from the server by another device they will still be on the phone?

Yeah. I had already tried this (the POP solution). It was what worked on my old phone but doesn't on this new one. I tried resetting it all but still got nowhere. I ended up just keying my e-mail on my home computer to automatically forward to a new Gmail address I set up on the phone. That worked.

One caution: if you have a phone with limited storage, you may find it quickly fills with your emails. You might wish to make your computer the location for long term email storage.
