Guessing this is a pop account. Check the advanced settings of that email account in Outlook "'more settings" then tick the option to leave a copy on the server.

If you want screenshots, I can provide.

It's not Outlook's fault as per say. User / configuration error + and how the other server is configured. Like GMail, for example you can force it from within google to leave a copy.
