DNS question mail and Stape


I’ve tried Cloudflare for speed optimalisation. It did work but I also did get a lot of DNS problems, so I turned it off. There are a lot of topics on DNS on the forum, but I dont see my specific questions. The problems I have:

  1. When I use CF my gmail pop3 from my website does not sync anymore. I can not reconnect even when I’m 100% sure my credentials are right.
  2. I use Stape for tracking leads in Meta, the DNS verification there fails once CF is active.

The dns records are all in CF.

Anybody has any pointers here?


Hi there,

Are your DNS record hostnames that you’re using for 1 & 2 proxied through Cloudflare? - Proxy status · Cloudflare DNS docs

They should be set to DNS-only and not proxied through Cloudflare.

The record for number 2 is a CNAME record, if so - this should be set to DNS-only and also check your CNAME flattening to ensure its set to flatten at root only - CNAME flattening · Cloudflare DNS docs

Hope the helps!

Hi Damien,

Thanks! So I have to put these entries do DNS only and it should work?

I will try activate it all again and report back.
