Resolving mail records shows error

Hi,

I am new to cloudflare and after editing all the DNS records it is not possible to use the email at my hosting provider. After resolving the mail records I get
;; ANSWER SECTION:
bybolke.nl. 888 IN MX 10 dc-925c17aa4177.bybolke.nl

;; ANSWER SECTION:
mail.bybolke.nl. 203 IN A 172.67.152.221
mail.bybolke.nl. 203 IN A 104.21.32.160

However I should get this :

mail.bybolke.nl. 203 IN A 91.142.254.90
bybolke.nl. 888 IN MX 10 mail.bybolke.nl.

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Your MX record points to a hostname that’s :orange: proxied. From your info, it looks like you’re using the ‘mail’ hostname, which is great, but it needs to be toggled to :grey: DNS Only.

Cloudflare does not proxy email connections, so they aliased your ‘mail’ hostname to that “dc” hostname in order to facilitate mail connections to a :grey: hostname. Anyhow, ‘mail’ should be :grey: and that’ll fix it.
