Not necessarily true.  There is a setting on the POP3 page in GMail to archive 
everything after it has been accessed by POP.  So I have the advantage (to 
me) of an offsite and searchable archive of all my email, and all the more 
recent stuff on my desktop in KMail, which I find more convenient to use than 
GMail.  The best of both worlds. :-)
