My DNS records exposing IPs that are proxied through Cloudflare

I’ve recently transitioned over to Cloudlare for my DNS and Access needs. As such, I’m dabbling my way around all the great tools that Cloudflare provides.

Although, I am proxing my IP through Cloudflare DNS for security, I also have to expose my IP via A & CNAME DNS records in order to support a mailserver.

I don’t believe that I can configure Cloudflare DNS such that exposing my IP can be prevented. But I wanted to check with the eXperts here at the community to get a authoritative response.


You are right, mail related records cannot be proxied as the proxies won’t handle them.
