"The latest update for Outlook 2016, build 16.0.6568.2025, is causing problems for people who use POP3 accounts and have Outlook set to leave mail on the server for a period of time. Instead of deleting the aged mail from the server, it deletes all of the mail."
It is also a problem if you try to access your email from other devices. It has been a rough 3 days.

For now, I switched my outlook accounts to leave the mail on the server.

When I have some time (haha) I will either switch my POP3 to a IMAP or revert back to an older build of Office 2016.

I use IMAP for email because I can use multiple devices to check my email and they all show the exact same thing. I don't store anything locally on a device, except one archive for certain emails. This is working for me on Outlook 2016, and the "Mail Droid" app on my Android phone.
