MX records need a matching A record but that exposes your IP

What am I missing here?

MX records need a matching A record, correct?

It can’t be proxied on cloudflare, so my IP is exposed.

Is there no solution?

The MX / DNS tutorial video was no help. It just states that you set an A record.

Hi @vpelss,

In short, if you have your website and mail on the same server, exposing the IP can’t be helped.

Yes, host your mail on a server other than your web origin(s) or use a 3rd party relay/filtering service.
