IP exposed mx mail

This record exposes the IP address used in the A record on mail.xxxxxxx, which you have proxied through Cloudflare.

How do i fix this issue

Cloudflare only proxies HTTP traffic (unless you use Spectrum) so mail records need to be public (“DNS only”). If your mail server is on the same IP address as your webserver, you will get this warning.

If you wish to keep your HTTP origin IP hidden, then you will need to move your mail server to another IP address or pass your inbound mail first through another service (although the latter will still show your IP address in outbound mail).
