I need to add an additional CNAME for Stripe bounced emails

I’m trying to add my domain in Stripe to send Stripe emails using my domain. To do so, I need to add a “bounce” cname(provided by Stripe) to Cloudflare. The problems is, I already have a cname for bounced emails that is handled by my email provider. I reached out to Stripe, and they told me to contact Cloudflare because it is Cloudflare that restricts bounce cnames to only one cname. Can someone please help me with this? I need to add an additional cname for Stripe bounced emails.

You can’t have a CNAME point to two different places. That would mean bounced mail has a 50/50 chance of going to the right place. You’d need a different hostname for each mail host. Maybe Stripe will let you use “bounces” instead.

@sdayman thank you for the answer and help. That is what I thought as well, it doesn’t make sense to have two CNAMES pointed to different places for bounced emails, but when I wrote to Stripe, their support literately told me to ask Cloudflare if Cloudflare would allow for two CNAMEs for bounce emails. I searched all over the web and I can’t seem to find anyone with the same issue.
