iCloud can't sync external email accounts, and you can only use @me.com and @mac.com addresses for email with iCloud.
If your work email can't use IMAP, your only option is to setup the POP account to not delete emails from the server if you need to read them in multiple places.

iCloud will not sync anything but iCloud mail.
If you set up your POP account in mail on both macs, you won't have some mail on one and some on the other, it will all be on both.
What won't happen though, is if you read an email on one mac, it won't get marked as read on the other. if you move or delete emails on one mac, they won't be deleted or moved on the other.

Thanks both for the replies.
Work has our mail server settings set to 'remove from server immediately' - so I would have some on one and not the other as they will have already been collected.
Does the mail folder need to be in the library folder (or wherever it is - I'm on my PC at the moment so can't see where the actual folder is located) - or can i move it? I have a dropbox account and was just wondering whether i could pop it in there?

As far as I know it needs to be in the library, no idea whether an alias or symlink would work, it's not something I've ever tried.
i don't know whether it helps but if you close mail when you finish with it and file the mail you have read in the iCloud mail archive/saved files, your old mail will always be available and new mail will always appear on the computer you are working on ( which you can then file.

Ok, thanks for your help - I may give symlinks a go
