I’ve setup the CloudFlare servers so I get reliable SSL for my web site, but I can’t seem to get mail working correctly.
I’ve created an A record for mail.example.com which points to the IP address of my mail server. So, Type=A, Name=mail, Content=IP Address of mail server, TTL=30, Proxy Status=DNS only.
For the first CNAME, when I created it, I entered an “@”, which CloudFlare changed to the base name and TLD extension.
Can someone suggest what to try to resolve this? I’ve deleted and recreated both the A & MX records multiple times, but that hasn’t helped.
I’ve done lots of DNS work previously and never had an issue until now. From my experience, everything is defined correctly, though, I would really like to have an SOA serial number so I could see that an update has occurred.
I’m at the point of Nuke & Pave on this, but don’t see a clean way to start from scratch.
Thanks for your help on this.
