MXToolbox shows my real host IP address

Hi Cloudflare Community

I just setup my site to route through Cloudflare and it seems to be fine however searching my site-name on MX Toolbox my real Host IP address is revealed. The Cloudflare name-servers are there and the site works fine.

Can anyone tell me from that if I have omitted a setup step or done something wrong?

I assume you refer to the MX record. If that is the case you cant really hide that. You’d need to point the MX records to a different server.

Hi Sandro,

Yes you’re right it only show when searching MX records. I’m not sure how to implement what you suggest but I will ask my hosting support.

Thanks for your help
