Mail server unreachable

dash-dns
#1

Hi, I have a domain mon-voyage-a-cuba.com proxied on cloudflare for http but I noticed some mail delivery troubles.

When I do a test on https://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=smtp%3Amon-voyage-a-cuba.com&run=toolpage# I get that error message:

Connecting to 104.27.174.43
5/3/2019 12:18:56 PM Connection attempt #1 - Unable to connect after 15 seconds. [15.03 sec]

It seems that mail is managed by 104.27.174.43 whitch is the cloudflare DNS, not my mail server 94.23.227.123. How can I manage to point mail on my mail server ?

Here is my config:

The linked article should provide you will all the information you required, particularly #4. You cant run SMTP traffic over a proxied record.

Don’t I have a A (mail) record set to :grey: ?

#6

You do, but where were you connecting to in the example you gave and what proxy status does that record have?

Sorry. I don’t get it.
Tried to add an A smtp record in case but no result. Now my conf is:

#8

You ran your test against mon-voyage-a-cuba.com and that record is still proxied. If you now run it against your smtp host it will work.

#9

So it works in fact. Thought the smtp was automaticaly added to the domain for the test

smtp is a custom name, there is no standard that requires that name, so they cant add that.

OK thanks a lot Sandro
