    Yes, Thunderbird can be configured to leave messages on a POP3 server, just like an other mail client I've used.

    Works great for me.

    Does every Gmail account have POP access now?

    I always seem to have problems configuring the outgoing server when I try to add another gmail account.

    To leave on server:
    tools > account settings > yourpopacct > server settings > check "leave messages on server" (for x-days / until deleted)

    To add multiple smtp servers:
    tools > account settings > outgoing server (at the bottom of acct list) > advanced > "add"
