I am using AOL which is an IMAP server of course. I upgraded from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010. Unlike most, I do not want to leave messages on the server, I want to download them onto my computer and not have a copy left on the server. Previously I could simply click '"do not leave a copy of messages on the server" I can't find that option with Outlook 2010. I know this is probably simple, but I'm stumped.

IMAP in Outlook (or any other email client AFAIK) has never had the option to automatically remove mail from the server.

Why? Because an IMAP account MIRRORS what's on the mail server. That's the whole point of IMAP. If you want to download email and have it removed from the server at the time of download then you have to use POP mail, not IMAP.
