best email client / OS to use? Have to configure about 40 email addresses with the client

Hi, I have about 40  emails I have to download messages from. Each email address receives between 5-10 emails per day. I currently have outlook 2007 installed on a windows 7 system and I have about 20 email addresses configured with it. But I cant add any more or I will get send and receive errors.

So can anyone recomend a good email client and OS ?

Can you get the specific error message?

Thunderbird is a good email client. The OS is already good.

Though I've never seen one person needing 40 email addresses before. Something might be already wrong there (as in design, concept, IT solution). Maybe you can elaborate on that, and we can think of a better solution?

Outlook 2010 can support 50 or more and can satisfy your needs. Outlook 2013 will do at least as well.

I have Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 and Outlook 2013 on Windows 8.1. Both work well.  Outlook 2007 is getting pretty old.

I am not at my office now so I cant check the exact error. But I know it does not send or receive if I do any additional.

I have a laptop I am only going to be using for the email but its an older laptop (dv9000). Still runs great though. The only thing is it seems to run XP more stable then windows 7. So since email is the only task we do on that laptop would it be ok to run XP with the office 2013?

Or would I be better off installing windows 7?

Why don't you create the new addresses as an alias for each one? This allows you to use the current email addresses without creating new ones?

XP will not run Office 2013 - dead and unsupported. So you need Windows 7 Pro 64-bit to provide for additional memory. One limitation of a lot of email accounts is memory. My Windows 8 machine has 8Gb of memory, XP cannot come close. So you need a machine and operating system with some horsepower to do what you want.

you can use gmail to aggregate and get the email from these accounts this way you only need 1 email address to send/receive .. gmail can be configured to use the receiving email address as the from address.
