Re: Email address blacklisted when VPN is on

Are you not able to send email from your comcast account when connected to VPN (email appears to go out but receipient never gets it)?  There is probably a SPAM block on the VPN provider's IP address.  Lots of people use VPN to send out their spam so it can't be tracked back to them, and other users get blocked when the IP gets blocked.

 

You can send a message to @ComcastCSAEmail to see if they can unblock it, but it might get blocked again.  Someone else had a similar issue with VPN in another thread.
