That is not the way exchange works. This is a real oversimplification,
but think of exchange being IMAP with a PIM component.

If you want to accomplish what you ask, make sure the exchange account
is configured for POP access, and set up Evo to use the POP protocol
when accessing the account. Then make sure it is NOT set to leave
retrieved mail on the server.
