MX record exposes the IP

Hi, I just started to use Cloudflare for CDN in my WordPress installation. The installation included a DNS setup, and from what I could see it was ok but I’m absolutely not a pro…
Besides the MX records, I have a warning that says “This record exposes the IP behind which you have proxied through Cloudflare”. Is this normal or do I need to do anything about it? See picture.


It is normal. If the mail server is also your webserver, then it might be a problem. If the mail server is provided by your service provider, then it is not really a problem for you (it is their problem)!
