Migrating from Exchange to POP mail

Hey folks, I have an interesting (I think) question about using Outlook to get mail from a Lotus Domino server. The company I work for uses a Lotus server for e-mail, and users can use a web-based interface or traditional POP3 mail applications to get their e-mail. This server is used for various offices around the US. Now, there is a user who came from one of these offices that had their own Exchange server for mail. She uses a laptop and has now moved over to my area, but we do not use Exchange and (mainly) use Outlook Express to get mail directly from the POP3 server. She uses Outlook on her laptop and, I guess, has the account instructed to keep a copy of the message on the server, because all the message can be accessed using the web mail program (which is what she wants). Also, on the server-side mail account, she has various folders where she organizes mail as it comes in. I have now setup Outlook with another POP mail account and set that to default. What is happening, however, is that all the mail in those folders are dumping into the inbox on the client-side. So, my question is, how did Outlook know not to download new messages, even though, technically, they were not in the inbox? Is this a setting that Exchange had? Actually, now that I think of it, how does Outlook Express and Lotus know not to duplicate mails that are deleted or moved, when checking for new messages? I guess, what I am asking, is how do I get it so that all her messages will stay on the the global server, and have only new ones downloaded into Outlook, regardless of what she does with them? Thank you.
