Email DNS Gmail account not sending or receiving

Hey guys - I am using Wordpress and cloud flare DNS.

However I am not able to access emails on my gmail account.

I believe it is because of this proxy.

I am unable to send or receive email from my configured gmail account. (POP)

If anyone has had a similar issue or knows how to Resolve something like this
Please let me know

If you have email DNS records, they need to be set to :grey:

Hello @sdayman I am just concerned for security - as there is a warning advising my IP is exposed?

Is there any alternatives? I guess hosting email separate to website would suffice?

That is exactly it. Email servers need to have public IP addresses so they can send and receive email.

Having email hosted on the same server as your website is a security tradeoff you need to evaluate.
