I don't see how his computer, without email, can be preventing you from getting email.
We're talking a pop account of some sort? May be you just don't have email?
Maybe your ISP is blocking email it detects as spam?

You indicated he does not have Outlook set-up to check email, what about any other email programs? I don't see the router being the cause. Is there any other problems when both machines are online? Do both connections work ok?
If the only problem you are having is the email, I'd look for either another email program that's checking the mail or check for spyware problems.
Can his machine send yours an email, or do you not even receive those?

If its working on the web based mail service (Nearly all ISP's have one) then delete your pop account in outlook and re-add it with the exact username, password, pop server, smtp server (your ISP is required to give you this information if your request it). Has to be exact... one little wrong letter, number, or symbol and your email wont wwork.
