Are MX records preserved when transferring a domain

I have a domain on Ionos (1&1) through which I send/receive email. I’d like to transfer the domain to Cloudflare.

If/when I do that, will Cloudflare preserve the MX records/settings so that email continues to work with Ionos as the email provider?


Cloudflare tries to scan all the records and does a pretty good job of finding the MX records. But, as always, be sure that all DNS records from your current DNS show up in Cloudflare DNS before completing the switchover.

Thank you. Everything seems to have moved over intact.
