Error in sending mail

My hosting and domain are crazy domain and I use Cloudflare for SSL but getting errors on sending mail via SMTP mail. Hosting provider A record is updated in Cloudflare and hosting provides told to connect to Cloudflare.

Error I received
fsockopen(): unable to connect to (Connection timed out)

Welcome to the Cloudflare Community. :logodrop:

It sounds like you have proxied email related hostnames. The Cloudflare proxy only supports HTTP and HTTPS. Hostnames that are used by other protocols must be set to :grey: DNS Only.

Yes but on the MX record this message is shown in the tooltip.

This record exposes the IP address used in the A record on, which you have proxied through Cloudflare

You will always have that notice when you run :orange: and :grey: hostnames on the same IP. If you run services other than HTTP and HTTPS on the same host you cannot avoid it.
