Gmail inbox not working

My email is now on Gmail. Able to send emails but can’t receive any. Appreciate advice on this…


Cloudflare does not proxy traffic on port 25 (SMTP) unless Cloudflare Spectrum is enabled and configured to proxy email traffic across Cloudflare.

If you do not have Spectrum enabled then no email traffic (SMTP) will actually pass through Cloudflare and we will simply resolve the DNS.

This also means that any DNS record used to send email traffic must be grey-clouded to bypass the Cloudflare network.
See Identifying subdomains compatible with Cloudflare’s proxy

The correct values for your DNS mail records depend on your email provider. Please see Managing DNS records in Cloudflare for instructions on configuring DNS mail records through the Cloudflare dashboard.

To request your email DNS records from Cloudflare DNS you can run a dig command from a bash console. Below is an example of requesting an MX record:

dig MX

If your email DNS records are resolving correctly but the issue persists, please review Email undeliverable when using Cloudflare then contact your email service provider to confirm your DNS records are correct.
