Error 9009 while entering MX Record for AWS SES

The configuration settings for MX records for the AWS SES has a value like so: <10 region.amazonses.com>.

The issue being there is “space” character after the number “10”. Cloudflare doesn’t allow me to use spaces in the value. Can I understand why and how I can go about fixing it.

In the AWS documentation, the MX Record always has a space in between and this is consistent across many articles.

Cloudflare places the priority in a separate field, not all in one field as shown in their documentation.

Put “10” in the priority field and remove it from the server field.

Thanks a ton. It works

I actually did set it up that way, it made the most logical sense. But removed it and wanted an expert opinion first.
