Took 24 hours to figure it out, but my yahoo mail does not send out msgs when VPN is on.   It returns an error code 475 suspicious activity.  I have windows 10 desktop and a windows 10 laptop.  Both have same issue.  Anyone have any ideas?  If not, that is a deal breaker for me.     

For the heck of it, I turned VPN back on and tested it throughout the day and I am no longer having problems.  The error msg is a yahoo one and the person that mentioned a new IP, I may have forced that but not sure.

Hi fellow "newbie"
I was going to ask about this message I got in my gmail; was sent by Avast the AV I am currently using and was wondering if this was one of those spam/phishing sh*t thing.
Sorry I don't have an answer or solution, but maybe Yahoo have their own VPN and like PopcornTime doesn't like competition ?
Anyway good luck with the problem, in my experience you will find good people and very much willing to help. :)

It might be possible that the VPN IP address is being blocked as it could have been used for illegal purposes in the past by other users. Reconnecting to get a new IP address might help.
