if your looking to simply transfer files, try setting up a VPN
if you want to have your contacts, try setting up both of the computers' outlooks to the same e-mail account

Copy your entire mailbox and folders to a PST file. Take it home on a flash drive and import it.

You can to the same procedure I gave you just make sure you change the name of the file being saved
Just use the file names like ibox.pst notes.pst etc.
