We will use this weblog (blog) post, here, to communicate the status of the migration, as progress is made. Once the migration is complete, we will post that information, here, and rename the title of this post to indicate the migration is complete.
The migration IS NOT complete until we have made that announcement, here. Do not make any changes to your e-mail settings until we have announced that the migration is complete.

How Will I Know the Migration is Complete?
What to Do *Before* the Upcoming E-mail Migration
Upcoming E-mail Server Migration
We are planning to perform the, previously announced, upcoming e-mail migration of 2018, the first week of September. We are tentatively planning on, Tuesday, September 4th, 2018, with Wednesday as an alternate date. Please review the original announcement for important details.
The most important detail to be aware of is the Username format change. After the migration is complete (not before), you will need to update the Username setting in your e-mail software to use the new format. Previously, the Username, for e-mail, was the first part of your e-mail address, before the “@” sign. After the migration is complete, the Username specified in your e-mail settings must include “@widomaker.com” (without quote marks).
For example, in the past, if your e-mail address was firstname.lastname@example.org, your Username was “example“. After the migration is complete, the Username would be “email@example.com“.
