When you configure your mailclient with POP your emails would be downloaded to your device. If you delete them locally that action will not take effect on the server. Some mail clients and apps will keep all messages on the server, some will delete them as soon as the messages are downloaded on your device, and some will give you the option to choose during configuration.
If you have kept a copy of all your messages on the server, at some point it will fill in completely.
