Email not working since switching on Cloudflare

I switched on Cloudflare last night and the website is working fine, but I am unable to send and receive emails from my Mail Client. I can from Webmail though.
What have I missed?

Change your mail CNAME record to an A record and point it to the same IP address, leaving the proxy icon at :grey:.

Which hosts does your mail client use?

babyrice.co.uk

email%201

So should I change the MX record to that rather than mail.babyrice.co.uk?

No, the MX record is fine, you need to change the left settings to mail..

Sorry, the settings on the left?
Do you mean I need to be using the non SSL settings for my mail client?

Yes, well, not the port numbers but the host.

It doesn’t like that. It’s timing out.

You changed both to mail? No timeouts for me and http://sitemeer.com/#tcp://mail.babyrice.co.uk:465 works too. Can you post a screenshot?
