Mediacom email and Macs -- don't always play well together.
  The solution for at least four of us was to automatically
  forward Mediacom mail to a gmail account and use the gmail
  account to interface with the Mac computer.

Examples:
  swormley1@mchsi.com  ==> swormley1@gmail.com  <==> Mail App
  sam.wormley@gmail.com  ==> swormley1@gmail.com  <==> Mail App

Syncing Apple Devices requires that they are all using the
same Apple ID and Apple ID password and either iCloud or
iCloud Drive. You cannot mix and match.
