MX settings error


#1

Hi! Im trying to setup an email account on my nameregistrar but I got some error and they told me to contact cloudflare about it.

I created an A record with the name mail pointing to their IP. (193.42.159.247)
And then I created an MX record with the name mail pointing to their domain (mail.egensajt.se)
But it doesnt work. The name for the website is commitmentcoaching.se

They say they see this error.

You have no MX records for the root domain, not sure what exactly you are intending, but the current way you have specified would handle mail for @mail.yourdomain.com email addresses. If it should be for the root domain, you will need to change the name of the MX to @.

Ok, does this look right? https://imgur.com/a/Qgw5pvy

Is there any website where I can see the errors like the nameservers support sent me?

That setup looks correct.

That error looks like it has come from the command line. There may be an online tool available, but I am not sure.

I looked to check the MX records using this tool:
