Unable to access email while traveling overseas

I am traveling in Japan and I cannot access my hawaii.rr.com email account because Oceanic Time Warner blocks the IP addresses in many overseas countries. The only way that I can access this account is through a third-party website.

A representative from Oceanic Time Warner wrote to me and stated, “We wish to apologize as there is no option for us to remove the block due to the potential security risks that may be involved.” I cannot even access the company’s webmail page.

Anyone who has an email account through Oceanic Time Warner and who plans to travel overseas should check with the company to see if they will be able to send and receive email. They might want to consider an alternative email provider.
