CNAME record needed to resolve, I don't have a website

I am trying to set up an Apple custom email domain (I own a domain through Cloudflare). I don’t want to host a website anymore though. Cloudflare is asking me to create a CNAME record so that the domain resolves. This requires an IP address. I don’t know what to do here. I’m not a networking expert.

Additionally, I have not been able to receive emails. If I pause Cloudflare, I do get emails. That’s how I ended up looking through my records for errors.

A CNAME doesn’t point to an IP address but another record (likely one of Apple’s). Create it here as Apple has requested…

If you can give the domain and show what Apple is asking you to set, we can check.
