What happens if I receive an email whilst my droplet is down?

Sorry if this is a bit of a stupid question, but I was wondering what would happen if my droplet was powered down and I receive some emails. Would I simply never see that email? I am using Roundcube web mail on a zPanel installation on Ubuntu.

Most mail system will attempt to resend the email. Think the defaults are every 4 hours for up to 5 days.
