My emails stopped working

My emails have been working correctly for many months, but all of the sudden stopped working. Last time I had the same problem I was able to get help, but this time I think it’s time to leave and move on with something better. Any idea on why emails stopped working?

What’s the domain?

That’s not very descriptive. Is there an error message?

Your ‘mail’ hostname is a functioning mail server. As long as your mail apps use the ‘mail’ hostname to send and receive mail, it should work properly. If your apps are properly configured, you’ll have to take this up with Bluehost, as it appears that’s their mail server.

Everything was working fine until I stopped recieving emails. The return mail keeps saying “The message could not be sent to [email protected] because the remote server is incorrectly configured. See the technical details below for more information.”

Trying to solve the problem I see cloudflare says “Some of your DNS-only records are exposing IP addresses that are proxy through Cloudflare. Make sure to represent all A, AAAA, and CNAME records that refer to proxy records to avoid exposing your source IP.” but I have no idea what to do.

Just found out a message saying " 550 Please turn on SMTP Authentication in your mail client, or login to the IMAP/POP3 server before sending your message. mail-ej1-f48.google.com [209.85.218.48]:40595 is not permitted to relay through this server without authentication."

That’s a hosting issue.

This is normal when you have email hosted on the same server as your website.

I don’t know how Google got involved with you sending email through your server.
