Sorry you had to wait a few days for a reply.
For the reason you mention above I use a web based mail so my emails are accessible no matter where I am or what computer I am using, though I did find a bit of information that might help you with how to receive emails in Outlook Express on two different computers.
This same topic was discussed here:
To access your messages with multiple POP clients, use recent mode in every client to make sure that all messages are made available, rather than only to the first client to access new mail. Recent mode fetches the last 30 days of mail, regardless of whether it's been sent to another POP client already.
To enable Recent mode, replace 'firstname.lastname@example.org' in the Username field of your POP client settings with 'recent:email@example.com' and ensure that the Leave messages on server option in your POP client is enabled.
and in the post below the one mentioned above:
Recent mode is the answer for POP access. Another option is to use IMAP, which will synchronize the clients.
It seems you might be able to synchronize the 2 clients using IMAP. Not being familiar with either of the two, I would be more then happy to further my research to help in any way I can. Let me know.
Others who are more experienced with OE may have something to share as well, so please stay tuned.

As you probably know, Outlook Express (OE) has been discontinued. However, Microsoft Office may be installed on two machines...one desktop and one mobile device (laptop, tablet, etc).
Outlook 2010 will allow you to set up your synchronization so that your emails are downloaded from the server onto both machines and leave a copy of the messages on the server so you can access them through their web portal. With Outlook, you can easily monitor multiple email accounts from multiple servers.
I would recommend doing just that...install Office 2010 on both machines.
