There were no records showing for my domain so I created all the new records. The website seems to be working fine, but my emails are not working. Can anyone assist? Here is a screenshot of my records. I have followed all the tutorials and tried many variations.
You need to have
smtp DNS records
Thank you for asking.
A bit from other perspective, I’d suggest you to double-check which of the below
CNAME records are you using at your e-mail client such as MS Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc. and/or in your Web app or mobile phone e-mail app:
As far as all of them point to
mail.yourdomain.com, you could simply remove all 4 of them and just configure and use
mail.yourdomain.com everywhere you’d be using normally.
- seems like you could possibly just doing a nonsense overhead with DNS records after all …
I write that because from my experience in one particular case, the web hosting provider offered hosting/e-mail, but not the SSL for a sub-domain of the client.
Therefore, client had to use the hostname of the given VPS/server and have had some CNAME records including
mail.clientdomain.com pointed to
What happened was MS Outlook was catching the
autodiscover “by default”, therefore detected and used
mail.clientdomain.com and alwas throw a warning and error about the SSL issue for the domain while connecting to the server to receive or sent out an e-mail.
Upon we removed them and changed his receiving and sending server to
hostname.server.com all worked fine.
So, this might be one case, just to mention it as far as I don’t know if you’re having similar situation with a hosting/e-mail provider, or a setup since before so they’re left there standing “as-is”, or you’re using cPanel, or something else.
MX record should point to a hostname such as
CNAME ) type record for that hostname should be set to (DNS Only).
I’d just like to drop here a suggestion as by checking below related article if your e-mail records (usually the A mail and the MX record) are configured properly while you are using Cloudflare for your domain name:
Thank you! I resolved it now. My host gave me records to add that were not necessary. I went and looked at my other domain set up and copied what I had done there previously. Everything is working now.
