Not so much a full solution, but some resources to help you with this achievement. Feel free to comment down below for help with specific emails you need and I can add some tips to the guide to make it easier as some Computers can be quite tricky to access!

- Like most collectible achievements in the game you don't actually have to read all the e-mails. This achievement should unlock at 150 emails.

- You can check which emails you have read in the DATA tab when pressing cn_back

- The first three emails in your Apartment are removed from the list after the Simulation Room Tests.

- Some emails are sent to multiple people, you only need to read these emails once, no need to read it on every different computer. (Although there is 2 emails named "Help!" which are actually different)

-It is also highly recommended that you upgrade your hacking skill as much as you can, as it will make it a lot easier to access computers as soon as you encounter them.

-So far besides the first 3 in your apartment none are missable.

- I recommend to get all collectible related achievements just after the Cargo Bay Area in the Main Story. The entire ship is then accessible and the enemies will not be as intrusive as they are if you progress the main story further.

Now here is a list of all the emails you need to read. They are mostly in order and split up by area with the username of the computer and the emails that are on it. In bold I will be adding some tips to find specific Computers that may be more difficult to find.

This is still a work in progress so feel free to comment with feedback or suggestions!

Neuromod Division
If you return here later in the game the Computer on the 2nd floor overlooking the helicopter sim may have no power. This is not a problem as that computer has no emails on it.

Morgan’s Apartment, Day 1 x3 [Congrats! And welcome!, Delivery, Ready?] These are the only missable ones that I know off. They may not be required since they are later removed from the list but I would read them to be sure.

Hardware Labs

There are 3 Computers here that you may miss, to access them you need to go to the Hardware Labs Hull Breach in the Exterior and repair the broken Breach Failsafe. When you return to the hardware labs the doors for the Beams & Waves Room will now be open. The Blackbox Project computer shouldn't count as it has no emails on it (only 2 files) but you can access it by finding Josh Dalton (The Blackbox Project side quest, which you should receive my reading the other emails in the area.

Talos I Exterior

Mikhaila Ilyushin x2 [RE: Have you seen Jean, See me] This computer is located in the Power Plant Hull Breach, however to power it up you will need to enter the Power Plant (from the Airlock is easiest) then follow the path and go up the Grav Shaft.
You will see on your left the Breach Door and a broken electrical panel beside it, you need to repair the item below it (or find a new one in the area) and place it in the wall panel. If you've done it right you will see the lights turn on outside the Breach Door. Now when you go to the Hull Breach the laptop will have power.
