I need to add an proxied MX record (I believe) I attempted to but is tells me “This record exposes the IP address used in the A record on jbeehoney.com, which you have proxied through Cloudflare.” I am unable to connect or send Email. My host said that the MX record is wrong.
What MX record were you asked to add?
Generally, if your website and email are running on the same server, the warning is to be expected and you should ignore it.
However, the target of the MX records needs to be DNS-only, not proxied. Currently, the target of your MX record is proxied, resulting in Cloudflare creating an “illegal” record to (sometimes) make it work.
dig +short jbeehoney.com mx 0 _dc-mx.9e2a21273820.jbeehoney.com.
Sending email is a completely different problem, the MX record isn’t related at all. What error do you see when you try to send email? Can you perform the test on https://www.mail-tester.com to see what exactly is wrong?
