Please I sincerely need help resolving this issue of email not getting sent or delivered after migrating to cloudflare. I have contacted my hosting support and they told me they have purged my cache. I have also read tutorial on this issue but I don’t know what am doing wrong. The setting given to me by namecheap which is my host, i tried creating on cloudflare but got error that it already existing. What am I doing wrong, please I really need help because I am stuck here.
Cloudflare doesn’t proxy SMTP, POP3 or IMAP so all of the mail related records should be
I will see to that but I doubt if I use smtp,pop etc.
Perhaps just start with the record labeled mail then.
I am getting a notification icon alert upon trying to do this that my IP will be exposed if I greyed it out. Look at attached picture
Indeed. If your mail server is on the same box as your website that is certainly the case. However, Cloudflare doesn’t proxy non-https protocols. So the records need to be in order to work. If it is important to hide the origin IP address of your web server you should move other services to a different server or service provider.
ok. I will check if this works then later I will move to another email provider instead of using my server email
I think mails have started working but with a con of exposing my IP address. Can I move my mail to a third party email provider and do the same configuration? Thanks in advance for response
