Expected CNAME record for "731777.mydomain.com" to match "sendgrid.net", but got "731777.mydomain.com."

I am trying to install SendGrid DNS record on Cloudflare, but I am getting this weird error message in SendGrid:
Expected CNAME record for “731777.mydomain.com” to match “sendgrid.net”, but got “731777.mydomain.com.”.

It seems that the problem is that CloudFlare is adding a dot at the end of record => “731777.mydomain.com.”

The trailing dot typically is not an issue. In your case the entire CNAME seems to be a mismatch.

What is the record in question?

You’ll need to unproxy these records first. Switch from :orange: to :grey:.

It worked. Should I keep it as unproxy?

Probably best to keep it unproxied.

Thank you very much!
