Open emacs??/lisp/gnus/pop3.el and search for the line with
`pop3-dele'.  Delete that line and the corresponding pop3.elc.  I
believe that pop3 will never delete mail if you do this.

I am sure that if you ask Lars on gnu.emacs.gnus, he or someone else
would add this feature [in a sane way].  The function `pop3-dele' is
responsible for removing your email with the `DELE' command.  If you
wish something cleaner, you could modify pop3-dele to do this,

   (defun pop3-dele (process msg)
     "Mark message-id MSG as deleted."
     (if (eq ks-delete-flag t)
         ((pop3-send-command process (format "DELE %s" msg))
          (pop3-read-response process))))

This is untested; as I said I always use IMAP.  IMAP is much nicer.

See ""; or other favorite RFC
repository for more.  

It is a shame that Gnus is so hard to set up.  It is very useful!
