Verizon email not accessible in France!

We are long-time loyal Verizon customers, landlines, mobile, and internet. We set up several new Verizon email accounts to use to manage our affairs in the USA and while traveling in France. However, now that we are in France, we discover that Verizon seems to be blocking access to email when the customer is in another country. This is a real problem and complication for us. Especially since Verizon does not inform it's customers or even admit that it is blocking email in this manner. Is this a permanent policy or any is there any chance that it will be resolved soon?

Sacrebleu!!!! Just kidding. Do you by chance have other email you can access?

The reason why I ask is because Hotmail, yahoo., Gmail all allow you to add alternate webmail addresses and access through their webmail portals (I. E. You would be using Gmail, or whomever, to access your verizon accounts) . As an example I have Gmail and Outlook, and I've configured all my different emails in their programs.

That means when I open Gmail.Com or, in addition to my normal folders, I also have folder for my old aol, my yahoo, my work email etc. And i can send and receive just fine.

Might be a good work around. Very easy fast setup.

I'd think it's either that or you'd have to call in or do chat support.
