You will have to use the IMAP protocol for that to work (instead of POP3). I have a similar setup for my personal email using my Gmail accounts. My home office computer and my netbook are both configured using IMAP, so when I send/receive emails on either device or on my Blackberry, then it's synced accross the board.

Depending on which email provider you use, the settings might vary. Usually most email providers will offer IMAP with SSL, so the incoming port should be 993 and the outgoing port 465.

The other alternative would be a Microsoft Exchange server or a hosted Exchange mailbox. A lot of web hosters offer this as a package, too, these days. Exchange's MAPI protocol offers similar functionality to IMAP, just better with more features.
