I switched my nameservers for https://www.boardnbones.com to Cloudflare but when I did my emails stopped working in Outlook (my main mail client) and IOS (my phone).

I am a writer, I have no idea how to solve this and so would love it if someone could explain it to me like I was a 5 year old.

I kept doing this until the warnings were gone and now my record looks like this:
