Hello Georgeidp,

In Oultook, select to leave a copy of email on server.  Then you can access the same email from two computers. In your account settings, More Options > Adcanced, check to leave a copy on server. Select the number of days that you want to leave on server. Click OK.

Yes, you can set two settings from different internet providers.

Hope this helps!

i think what i was trying to say is there a way, i can just use the file menu and change connections from home  based network to the work based settings without changing the incomming and outgoing server smtp all the time.
