Cloudflare and Mails

Hi, i am IT in my company and we are having two ISP’s within, One is our primary provider and the second one is our backup just in case the First one fails. We recently had a downtime on our Primary ISP where our mails are directed to and we couldnt receive any orders since the IP is assigned to our primary provider. How can Cloudflare help us when one of our ISP is down the other picks automatically?

MX Records are designed for this, where you have a primary (early priority number) and a secondary (later priority number). So if the first mail server isn’t available to receive mail for your domain, it will go to the second one.
