The short answer is No....
IMAP is by nature an "access protocol" in which the messages reside on the server and your computer / device is accessing them. I actually recommend to clients to use IMAP as that way 1) you can keep your devices in sync and 2) if something should ever happen to your computer the email is all stored on the server.
