MX record exposes my IP

Hello Everyone,

Glad to be a part of the community. I was looking at my DNS records, and I am seeing an alert for my MX record stating “This record exposes the IP behind (my domain) which you have proxied through Cloudflare”. My whole point to sign up with Cloudflare was to not show my IP and add an added layer of protection. How would I go about correcting this MX record? Thank you!

Hi @redrockraphael,

Do you have your website and email on the same server/hosting?

If so, you probably can’t hide the IP. More info here:
