I set up my work Outlook for Mac 2011 Exchange account on my work computer today and now the identical set-up on my home computer is no longer working. Help!

I've had my work Exchange account set up in the Outlook for Mac 2011 application on my home computer for awhile, and have been accessing email when in the office via the webmail interface. Today, I set up my mail account in the desktop Outlook for Mac 2011 application on my work computer (while at work). I was able to download my email while at work fine. And, mail is still syncing to my iPhone no matter where I am (on the office wifi, via home wifi or via 3G cell). However, when I got home this evening and launched my home computer Outlook install, I cannot sync/download any of my email, calendar or other information; the Progress box has been "Updating local..." for the past 30 minutes.
I've used the exact same settings on both computers, with one difference (server info is different for home since I'm outside the office network). I've double-checked that my home settings didn't somehow mysteriously get updated with my office info. I've shut down/restarted multiple times. I know my company keeps all of our email on the server forever (and I can see it via the webmail interface) so I know it's still there - my home Outlook just can't get it.
Anyone have any ideas what might be going on or how I might fix? Thanks!
