We look after a website www.markspallets.com.au, and only just setup Cloudflare tonight.
Immediately after setting up we lost mail services only to realise I needed to add them to DNS under Cloudflare control panel.
These were added about 2-3 hours ago.
MX mail.markspallets.com.au Priority 1
If I ping markspallets.com.au I get the Cloudflare IP (as I should).
If I ping mail.markspallets.com.au, about an hr ago I got the Cloudflare IP (as I should).
If I ping mail.markspallets.com.au, NOW I get (as I should).
Problem I have is it seems I’m the only one getting it to resolve that way.
Testing email via Telstra Bigpond, via Gmail, via Sendgrid, OR checking MX records from MX Toolbox or DNSStuff, all still come back via the Cloudflare IP.
Is it just a matter of time to propagate over? Clearly it has already if I’m able to ping and get the correct IP come back right?
It’s 2AM here, and so got a few hours up my sleeve, just hoping this is the issue.
Cloudflare DNS under control panel is still telling me “An MX record was not found for your root domain. An MX record is required for mail to reach @ markspallets.com.au addresses.” (which is completely wrong as we do.
Appreciate anyones assistance on this. Tis the last thing I needed doing night maintenance.
