Email settings to Gray cloud

email

#1

Hi all,
New to all this Cloudfare but I setup email and my domain in cloudfare, by followng the article below, it suggests email to be setup as Gray cloud, but I turn orange to Gray I get the following notification:

An A, AAAA, CNAME, or MX record is pointed to your origin server exposing your origin IP address. So this email gray cloud setting is exposing my IP’s origin server

It this acceptable or should it be changed back to Orange?

Thank you everyone in advance :).

You should set all mail records to :grey: else they won’t work as expected. Unfortunately, on some hosting, this does have the effect of making your IP public. Not a lot that you can do about this, unless your host can give you a separate IP for mail (which I doubt they will do)…
