A client of mine has DSL and wants to connect their home pc to their work computer so that they both have the same e-mail address, an I.T. guy at my work says they then would need a static ip address. What does that do?

You don't need to do that. Just set Outlook Express or Outlook or whatever up on the home computer in the same way the works one is set up.

However this may not be possible from outside the company if its a company web address as some of them don't like you doing it this way.

you dont need to, but if you dont clients of your client may think that someone is sending fake emails from his account using another computer.
