Deleting emails on Cox deletes my emails in Outlook

I depend on my emails to stay in Outlook. A few months back i updated to Microsoft 365. When i set up the email from Cox, it set it up as an IMAP. I received a notice that Cox email had reached it's limit on their server. I went in and deleted the emails on the cox server. Every single one disappeared from my Outlook. Every correspondence, invoice, etc. Over 1000 emails. Why?

    i've used outlook back to 2002 & have always setup cox as pop3 on primary device.

    laptops + cell phones are all imap because when i'm traveling, i can access email thru hotel wifi but can't send.

    i delete what i want from either laptop/cell phones, have emails i want when back to home base.
