Once the E-mail Migration of 2018 is complete, customers with an e-mail address that ends with @widomaker.com (or tni.net) will need to update the settings in their e-mail software. This article contains instructions for customers using the Apple Mail app in OS X e-mail software, on their Apple Mac desktop, or laptop computer.

If the option to “Automatically manage connection settings” is enabled in Mail Preferences in OS X Yosemite v10.10 or later, Mail may automatically try using your email user name with and without your account’s domain name. In that case, you may not have to make any changes. Mail may automatically work.
