Outlook Email 2010/Gmail/ F-Secure Freedome Problem

Cangrejo Posts: 1 New Member

I installed a trial F-Secure Freedome VPN program on my Windows 7 PC.  I have a Gmail account and use Outlook 2010 as my email client.  I was not able to access my Gmail via Outlook 2010 with the trial F-Secure Freedome VPN program installed.  I received a warning from Google about a security breach and my account was locked until I changed my password.  I changed my password and tried again with the same results.  I deleted my Outlook 2010 account and it worked fine with web based Gmail.  I rely on Outlook on my Windows 7 PC so it appears that the F-Secure Freedome VPN program won't work for me.  If you have a solution please let me know.  I have the F-Secure Freedome VPN program running on my Android tablet with not issues or warnings from Google.  I would like to buy a subscription for my Android tablet when my trial period is over in two days, but I want to be able to include my desktop PC.

Thank you,

    Same issue on my side with Apple Mail on my MacBook Pro.

    I followed the setup from F-Secure but it did not work.

    I contacted the support but they could not do nothing neither.

    It is just does not make sense to have to disconnect from a VPN service in order to receive/send emails.

    Just tried NordVPN and I am not facing this issue at all.
    However I would rather to stay with F-Secure as the speed is excellent.
    But if I have to I will sacrifice the speed to get better security and privacy with Nord VPN.

    Hello C.

    Here is my ideas.
    - too many pieces in the same computer: 2 email apps + Win + Freedom. Is it synchronizing?
    - checking email rules, windows settings
    - could you use gmail in android tablet
    and outlooks email in computer? Is this a solution for problem?

    I hope this helps you.
