AttentionOct 18, 2019 – 9:56 AM ET – There is currently an issue affecting customers with @widomaker.com e-mail accounts.

Those domain aliases (widowmaker.com and tni.net) are not currently mapped to their original domains. As a result, users will experience the inability to receive emails at the address of an aliased domain until the issue is resolved. Our e-mail server provider is working on resolving the issue.
