Pegasus Mail ( http://www.pmail.com   )
The Bat!     ( http://www.ritlabs.com )

Are the two that come to my mind. There are a couple of other ones that can do 
what you are after (if that is, checking/deleting mail on the server without 
downloading it).

Pegasus has a lot of features, but the user interface takes a little getting 
used to. The Bat is a nice client for Windows (its not free, unlike Pegasus). 
The user interface is nice, and the templates feature is especially useful. 
Both support multiple accounts.
