Hi All! I know there are lots of questions (and answers) about the proper DNS settings for using Gmail (with Google Workspace) with Cloudflare. I’m still confused, though, as it seems that there is conflicting information.
So I after Google Domains announced the registrar business to Squarespace, I transferred my domains to another registrar (Porkbun). And then did this:
Changed the nameservers (on Porkbun) to Cloudflare’s
armfazh.ns.cloudflare.com and mimi.ns.cloudflare.com
On Cloudlfare, setup A records (beige[dot]company & www) to point to my web host (18.104.22.168)
Added the MX records as listed here
v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all
But it doesn’t seem to work correctly. Some emails are coming through, some emails (e.g. from clients) are not being delivered.
Is there anything wrong with the above setting? For example, should I use the MX settings as described here

Any help (or at least a hint) would be super welcome!
