Change to DNS for verification emails

I am not receiving verification emails from certain websites and apps. My server says I need to go the the cloudflare dashboard change the MX record and A (mail) record to " DNS only".

If you could explain how I do this, that would be greatly appreciated.


Hi @user17461,

On the DNS page of your dashboard, you will see a list of records.

There will likely be one with type MX that points to mail.yourdomain.tld. If that’s the case, find the record with type A with the name mail and click edit next to it. There should then be a toggle by the :orange: to turn it to :grey: DNS Only.

If you need more help, please post a screenshot of your DNS page with the IP addresses redacted.

Thank you so much for your prompt help. Very easy and straightforward. Have a great day.
