If you're using outlook to view your email and something else to view them, make sure that you have "keep a copy of this email on the server". I know when you use Outlook, delete from server after 14 days is automatically checked off.

The easiest way to stop a pop3 client from removing messages from the server is to change the password that you use to log into webmail. Then the client can't authenticate to pull the mail.

The setting would be in the email client (Outlook, etc.), not in Verizon Yahoo webmail.
