Email forwarding and CNAME records

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I have a Heroku app and a domain that maps to it. The host records are set up as follows: Now I want email to [email protected] to be forwarded to my gmail account. I was told by the support for my domain name registrar that since I'm using CNAME records that's not possible as the MX records will be overridden by the CNAME records. Is that true? If so how can I work around it? (HowTos)
