Using Exchange email on Windows Phone 8, Android, and iPhone

I need to swap out my BlackBerry for a new phone and am having trouble determining which platform will best meet my needs.
My number one concern is Exchange email integration since my business runs on email. Windows Phone 8 would seem like a logical choice since it is a Microsoft operating system and has Outlook built-in, plus a lot of people have said good things about the user interface and the stability of the operating system (I'm not too concerned about the dearth of smartphone apps available).
I have determined that I would be able to limit how much existing email a brand new Windows Phone downloads when I first set it up, but I have been unable to determine whether I will be able to set up email to work in both of the following ways:
1. When deleting an email, always prompt whether to delete the email from the Exchange server too.
2. When deleting an email, never delete the email from the Exchange server.
Does anyone know what is the default setting and what other settings are available? Does it depend at all on the service provider? (I would most likely be using T-Mobile.)
For other email like Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, etc., will the same options be available?
Would I be able to easily set up Exchange email to always prompt whether to delete from the server, and/or to never delete from the server, on Android or iPhone?
