How to Proxy email

how do I proxy my email to thanks in advance

Sorry, but Cloudflare does not proxy email. Any email-related hostnames in DNS should be set to :grey: DNS Only.

ok thx. So maybe you can help me understand what I need. I tried to set up a new IG account for my new business. I got the following message:
The IP address you are using has been flagged as an open proxy. If you believe this to be incorrect, please visit

So how do I set my email to DNS or is that something I need to do with namecheap (where I bought the domain/email)? thx for any help!

i just checked too and my email is set as DNS so I really don’t understand IG’s error message whatsoever.

It means it’s an insecure mail server. You’ll have to take this up with whoever owns that IP address and the service on it.

ok thank you

ok i was able to resolve the IG issue. now, on my account i see this message:
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.
