Shortly after noon, on Saturday, April 30th, 2016, one of Widomaker’s servers (wilma.widomaker.com) became unavailable. The server hosting provider has acknowledged an issue with the hypervisor running that server. The server hosting provider has opened a ticket and is working to resolve the problem.
Apparently there was significant file system corruption following the previous Unscheduled Emergency Maintenance for wilma.widomaker.com, Friday, March 18 2016, 8:00 PM EDT.
This issue only effects users with an e-mail address that ends with @widomaker.com (or @tni.net).
Due to a drive failure, one of our servers, wilma.widomaker.com, will be shutdown for approximately 15 to 25 minutes, starting around 8:00PM ET, today, March 18th, 2016. During that time, some services, provided by that server, will be unavailable.
One of our servers (wilma.widomaker.com) will be migrated to a new platform. This will require shutting down the server for a brief time…
We have been informed by our data center, and server provider, that they will be performing maintenance on the nodes that several of our servers are using. This will require them to shut down several of our servers for a brief time.
Reminder… Widomaker will never ask for your password, credit card, or other personal information via email!

As of 3:55PM ET, on 12/28/2013, Widomaker is performing emergency maintenance and repairs on one of our servers. While this maintenance is going on, some services may be occasionally unavailable.
The services that may be affected are…
- Incoming and outgoing mail service for widomaker.com e-mail accounts (mail.widomaker.com and smtp.widomaker.com).
- Widomaker’s web page (www.widomaker.com and home.widomaker.com)
We are working on repairs as quickly as possible and hope to have these services restored soon.
Updates may be found here on Widomaker’s weblog (http://weblog.widomaker.com).
Update 5:55PM: Services have been restored.
This week Widomaker will be upgrading the anti-spam systems for widomaker.com e-mail accounts. Please note that this will only affect customers who use an e-mail address that ends in “widomaker.com” (or an alternate form).
The new Widomaker.com Anti-Spam System provides more options, better accuracy, and increased speed of processing. The only difference that e-mail users should notice is less spam or junk e-mail in their mailbox.
The anti-spam filtering methods and system have been specifically designed to avoid false positives. However, if you notice that a legitimate message has been rejected as spam, please notify us so we can look into the issue.
Optionally, a personal anti-spam control panel is available and a periodic protection report can be e-mailed, in PDF format, to a customer’s widomaker.com e-mail address. Any customers interested in receiving this report should contact our office to enable that option. A very small monthly fee applies for this option.
The PDF report outlines a summary of the spam and viruses that the filtering service has protected your e-mail address from receiving.
To view the report, a PDF reader is required. You may already have a PDF reader installed on your computer. If not, there are several free PDF readers available.
Widomaker has scheduled some planned downtime for, Sunday, August 25th, 2013, in order to perform maintenance and relocate several servers to a new data center. Click “Read the Rest of This Entry” for details and updates…

Services were restored as of 10:15am.
