How to delete emails on BB Z 10 and not on Hotmail account?

So I have been trying to figure out how to delete emails on my BBZ10 so if I let someone use my phone they will not be  able to snoop at my emails. When I delete them from my BBZ10 they are deleted from the server too. Is there a way to delete them on the phone only? Or is there a way to just password protect just the email account? That would be neat, password protect just one or two applications instead of the whole phone. Password protect Facebook only, Twitter only or an email account only.

Thanks for your help.

deleted emails are also deleted from the server (no more BIS).

 

I don't believe that you can password protect email access. The password gets stored at account setup. If you change the account password, I believe that the Z10 will ask you for the new password. I don't know if you will have the option not to save it though.

The current workaround is to file those emails in a folder (once they are read) and make sure that "show filed messages" is turned off in the hub settings.

 

There is a thread about it here.

 

This will keep the messages on the server for use on another machine, and have them not displayed on the Z10.

Why would they remove the BIS option? I likes that option. Who else like that option, did you?

I think this option was fantastic. Not a great leap forward on this one.
