Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64

Too many to count. Different roles and personas on multiple domains through POP. I also use Outlook as the client for my accounts driven by Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail engines. I like using one client to send/receive all my email from one place rather than having to use Yahoo web client, then Gmail web client, then Hotmail web client, etc. I just create separate folders for each account, and use Rules to have Outlook automatically place my inbound emails in the proper folders, so I can easily see which account the mail came in on.

Right there, you adjusted my thinking about Outlook. It seems well designed for corporate single account use, but has seemed limited in design for use with multiple personal email accounts.

Although, I have been exploring the idea of installing 2010 for additional features. I need a backup and a morning dedicated to making sure all goes well with the upgrade.
I have failed to detect the limitation for multiple accounts in Outlook 2010. I have it on two machines with 4 accounts each and haven't encountered any problems

ultimate 64 sp1

zero - i don't use outlook (even though i can) as it doesn't display html mail properly, using the word rendering engine, and not ie/trident.

my fave client is still windows live mail 2009, where i've currently got three accounts.

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1

I have about 12 different email accounts, I use outlook but prefer Eudora.
I have only 4 on my iPad but I have all 12 on my iPhone.

Keeps me on top of things but I do get a lot of spam having been on newsgroups since the mid 80's

I use Outlook only to open older PST files from my former employment. My personal email accounts, five of them, are in Evolution which I have been using for about ten years.
