I recently have started using iCloud for Mail on both my laptop (MacBookPro, OSX 10.8.5) and my smartphone (iPhone4, iOS7.1.1). 
I understand that with iCloud mail is stored in the cloud.  Is there a way of erasing a message from either the laptop or the smartphone while leaving it on the other?  How?

Hi jeagle7,
iCloud uses a form of IMAP for mail, meaning that by default, the mail should appear the same on any device accessing the account, and anything done to the mail (such as deleting it) should apply to all devices. If you like, you may want to make a local copy of the mail prior to deleting it; the following article may be helpful:
