Local host not proxied

I just started with Cloudflare and I have setup my DNS. The little window says; " A few more steps are required to complete your setup.Hide Make sure all A, AAAA, and CNAME records pointing to proxied records are also proxied to avoid exposing your origin IP."
one issue is;
A - localhost - ###.#.#.# - Auto - DNS only - local IP
This line does not have the orange cloud Proxied. How do I get it to have the orange cloud?

The other issues on this table is;
MX - bestbong.pro - mail.bestbong.pro - Auto - DNS only
This line has a “triangle warning sign” that says “this record exposes your original IP”. What can I do about this?

What address is that? My guess would be 127.0.0.1 and that address cannot be proxied.

Not much, mail is not handled by Cloudflare hence you cant proxy it. If that is the same address as your main server you’d need to move mail to a separate address, if you want to keep your main address hidden.
