Mail Forwarding Problems with CNAME...

I'm looking into transferring my domains to NameCheap. I notice that the instructions for How to Set Up and Test a CNAME Domain with S-Drive don't include NameCheap. Was this straightforward when you did this, Tom? I would hate to go from one morass to another.

Sorry, I don't use S-Drive. I do use NameCheap and like their prices and interface.
CoffeeCup... Yeah, they are the best!

On 1and1, when you do the CNAME setup for 1and1 there is a box you must check before confirming. It says:

I am aware and accept that all current DNS settings, e-mail addresses, and forwards will be disabled.

Therefore by moving the CNAME to CC there is no way I can use the email address associated with my domain name.

Who on the forum uses S-Drive and keeps their own Domain? And if so, what Domain Registrar do you use that allows you to keep and forward the email associated with your Domain Name?
