Make sure the "Delivery Location" set on both pc's is your Mailbox NOT your Personal Folders or that your Personal Folders are defined as the same NETWORK share on both machines.  Mailbox folders are on the server.  Personal Folders are (usually) on your C: drive.

Patchy,
Sounds like you are setup to retrieve your office messages via the Internet Mail Service in outlook. If this is correct then your problem will be corrected by following these steps

 Go into Tool/Services
 Select the Internet Mail Service
 Select the Advanced Tab
 Now you should see a checkbox "Leave a copy of messages on server"  Check this....

Now your mail should stay on your office server and only be deleted when you delete it there...
