Some backgorund, I have domain through NameCheap and a VPS through HostUs which is running the webserver. I’m using Cloudflare nameservers. I got my simple wordpress site up and running. However, since I’m not using any hosted services I’m finding it difficult to incorporate full email functionality. I want to add when someone emails my domain it is redirected to a gmail account. Therefore, I have install postfix on the VPS and configured it do so.
So I went to add an MX record to my DNS settings on Cloudflare … Given the warning, I went to make a subdomain. Namecheap support says I’ll have to deal with Cloudflare for this given I use their nameservers? There is no option on NameCheap’s dns to do so. So I read I can make like a mail.mysite.com subdomain using an A record. The emails I’m sending the mail.mysite.com address are not being delivered.
Anyone out there willing to help me sort this out? It would be greatly appreciated.
