Sync apple mail account on two computers

For my work email account, my home computer has folders with lots of saved emails, a large inbox with lots of mail and a large folder of sent email. I’d like that all on my work computer.
I plan to use Apple Mail app on my work computer for the first time. Up till now, I have been logging in to the on-line outlook web app when at work. I don’t want to end up with dupes of mail that is still on the server if then the work Apple Mail app logs in for the first time to the account on-line. I guess I could erase all mail on-line before doing the sync, but is there a better way?
I know I can save my email folders by doing an archive of the various folders within the mail app. Can I just copy those to a portable drive and load them into the proper library folder? is there a better way?
Once synced, I’d like to keep sent mail from this account in sync on both computers.
As a workaround, I send myself copies of important mail messages, but I assume there is a better way.
