Web Mail vs Outlook

New to Microsoft Outlook and Windows 10.

Previous software allowed me to download emails to my email box on PC.  Periodically I would delete these same emails from my Virgin Media Web Mail and they would remain on my PC until I deleted them from there.

Now, using Outlook, every time I delete an email from my Web Mail it also disappears from my PC.  How can I stop this from happening?

Advice gratefully received.

Pusser.

Configure Outlook to use POP instead of IMAP.

Sololobo is right there. The only point I would add is that rather than simply change your existing settings in Outlook you should set up a new set of account settings in Outlook, using your existing email address but with the IMAP settings rather than POP3.
