Exposed IP

“Some of your DNS only records are exposing IPs that are proxied through Cloudflare. Make sure to proxy all A, AAAA, and CNAME records pointing to proxied records to avoid exposing your origin IP.”
Please suggest what has to be done.

Exposed records are marked with a warning symbol beside them. You can then decide whether or not it’s necessary or possible to take actions such as enabling proxying, changing the record, or even removing it.

MX is the mail record. And I asked my web hosting support team, they said that I can ask cloud flare about this.
This is what they said:
“yes MX record is for mail but its not support proxy record setting. you may contact couldflare support to check if they will help to enable proxy setting for MX record from their end else you can leave it as it is”


That’s not possible. Maybe with Enterprise, but definitely not for Free/Pro. However, besides the IP leak, everything else would work as expected.

Will I have to have another IP ( domain/ web host) for mails? Or is there anything better for mails by visitors thru my website. Can personal Gmail account be linked for this? Please tell.

If you want to host your emails on your own servers, the IP will be public. Personally, I use GSuite which is GMail and other Google products with your own domain.

About 2 years ago I experienced the exact same issue, my host was managed so they were able to build some sort of structure in which the mail IP would be DDoS protected by Voxility and was tunned for receiving and sending emails only.
Long story short, this is something you or your hosting should fix :grinning:, alternatively you could use another service for mailing.
