What gives you this mistaken impression?
It isn't mistaken, it is fact.
Yes, the POP3 protocol was later amended to provide for optional
capabilities like leaving messages on the server, and most clients have
such options, but this is error-prone, and some servers do not honor
what you tell them (ie, gmail)...
I have many times seen servers/clients 'forget' what messages they have
already downloaded, and someone will start downloading the last 5 years
of their emails all over again...
