    When you request help , it assists if you supply as much information as possible.

    What email account is setup on Outlook,
    Pop or imap?
    What email provider is it ? Gmail, yahoo, ISP?
    What version of Microsoft Office are you using?
    What version of Windows are you using?

    Ok as far as I know yahoo does not retain a copy of mail for a 2nd device like an iPad.
    To fix this you need to tell outlook to leave mail on the server.
    Open outlook and go to tools ,email accounts
    Open your account and look under the advanced setting page and set the settings like the picture Below.
    This should resolve the problem.
