I have a Windows PC that a user is going o take home
it on our Small Business Server 2011 Standard which includes Exchange server 2010
it's using his account

Outlook email account
Server: servername.domain name.domain.pvt
username: user@domain.com
Under more setting
Exchange proxy settings
"Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP" is enabled
URL:
https://email.domain.com
proxy server MSSTD: email.ksninc.com

What do I change on the Outlook email account so the user can continue to  use his Outlook from home?

thanks

For this to work will require you have a public DNS -> IP lookup, then all should work... well... if person accessing from home has their end setup correctly.

Your work system will also have to be publicly accessible, so internal only systems will require setting up something like an ssh proxy chain.

Well my smart phones have no problem get to Exchange using my DNS https:\\email.domain.com also Remote Web Access through a browser works fine https:\\email.domain.com\OWA or https:\email.domain.com\remote 

How do I get an Outlook to work this way when away from the office where Exchanged is hosted

The settings which you have already configured below is called as outlook anywhere. So even if you take the laptop home the same below setting should work, however from outside network you need to make sure autodiscover is working fine.

Outlook email account
Server: servername.domain name.domain.pvt
username: user@domain.com
Under more setting
Exchange proxy settings
"Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP" is enabled
URL:
https://email.domain.com
proxy server MSSTD: email.ksninc.com

If you have a third party certificate with email.ksninc.com and autodiscover.ksninc.com updated in SAN entry of cert and also you have a host A record for autodiscover then I think this will work with home network as well.
