Was the site working with SSL prior to adding it to Cloudflare?*

Have you tried from another browser and/or incognito mode?

I need somebody to help and look at my records.

mail.jenveyhouse.co.za is not open on port 25. Port 587 and 465 are ok. Correction, just tried from another IP address, port 25 is open to that.

Anyway, it’s an issue at your hosting end, your Cloudflare settings are ok.

Hi Sjr
Thank you for reaching out and providing assistance. Are you saying my records are okay? What should I be telling them?

The records are ok and the mail server is accepting connections so mail should come in.

Re-reading your post you say “the server rejected one of the recipient addresses. The message has been placed in your Outbox” - are you trying to send email from your client using this mail server? If so you will need to authenticate (and likely use port 587 with SSL).

Thank a million sjr, the emails are coming through. Much appreciated.
