Why it is in this way ??

Because the POP protocol downloads the mail messages to your local
machine - after the download, the mail messages are to all intents and
purposes local messages, hence the messages are treated as being local.
This differs from IMAP where the messages are always held on the server
and the local copy is purely a cached copy.

What about the case when i have done message storage setting - Leave
message on server ??
In that case i am keeping message on server only.

If you wish to store POP messages somewhere other than your local folder
tree, then you need to use filters to move the messages somewhere based
on their source account.

In this case also finally i can see data base available under local
provider only.

Why evolution will create pop folder it self if he is not using for any
storage purpose.
