    The message will be received and held by whatever mail server is being used for his domain name account(s). He can have Outlook set to automatically connect to the mail server and download all new incoming messages as soon as Outlook starts to run on the computer.

    Once you have your domain name and email address setup, outlook can connect to the mail server with the pop3 or imap settings provided by your email provider.
