You can't.

And you don't want to be downloading your email to this pc or your email will be split between them.

You want to configure outlook the same as at home [pop and smtp servers/ports/user logon etc] but in the advanced tab check leave the mail on the server. This will allow you to read it but still download it at home.

You may be able to. You only need to know a few things.

Outlook can do one of two things. It can keep your email on the hosting server or download it.

Second is your email server. If you know what it is and can access it directly then you can use your home email. If not you need to use a VPN to work to access the server.
