Leave messages on sever Outlook 2011

How do I use Outlook for my email but leave the messages on the server so I can access them from another computer? I can set up the account as IMAP or Exchange but I don't really understand the difference.  And I can't find the option in either to control where my messages reside.

Go to your email settings in Outlook and check the box to leave copies of messages on the server.
