[Resolved] Configure outlook with cloudflare


#1

Hi,

I have been using Cloudflare for a few days and since my Outlook software can no longer connect to my webmail (Connection failed).

DNS :
A mail points to x.x.x.x Automatic (grey cloud)
MX domain.tld mail handled by mail.domain.tld Automatic

I didn’t change the settings in Outlook.
Port IMAP : 143 without encryption
Port SMTP : 25 without encryption

I don’t know what I need to change to work again outlook so I allow myself to ask the question.

Feel free to contact me for any further information.

Best regard


Original version

Bonjour,

J’utilise Cloudflare depuis quelques jours et depuis mon logiciel Outlook ne peut plus se connescter à mon webmail (La connexion a échoué).

DNS :
A mail points to x.x.x.x Automatic (grey cloud)
MX domain.tld mail handled by mail.domain.tld Automatic

Je n’ai pas changé les paramètres dans Outlook.
Port IMAP : 143 sans chiffrement
Port SMTP : 25 sans chiffrement

Je ne sais pas ce que je dois changer pour refaire fonctionner outlook alors je me permets de vous poser la question.

Je reste à votre disposition pour tout renseignement complémentaire.

Cordialement


Not able to receive or sendmails

Which hosts do the IMAP and SMTP host show?

Hi Sandro,

Thank you for your interest.

Hosts are personal hosts. I created a mailbox on a dedicated server (with roundube). IMAP and SMTP display the name of my domain: “synd-cgt.fr”. That’s what I called “domain.tld” in my first post.

Thats the issue, your naked domain is proxied through Cloudflare (hence it has Cloudflare IPs) but also used for your email client. That last bit cant work.

You’d need to point Outlook to your actual server. If that is the same as mail you can simply prepend mail. to both hosts and it should work.

Thank you Sandro, that was it.

Everything works again.

Best regards.
