Some of your DNS only records are exposing IPs that

I just set up Cloudflare for site, everything works nice, but in the DNS settings I get a message saying

“Some of your DNS only records are exposing IPs that are proxied through Cloudflare. Make sure to proxy all A, AAAA, and CNAME records pointing to proxied records to avoid exposing your origin IP.”

For me the point of using Cloudflare is to increase the speed of my site and also protect it from hackers and hide my server’s IP.

This is how my settings look, the problem is with the MX record:

How to fix this?

If I delete the record will my IP become hidden?

If you host mail on the same server as your website, you have to expose the Origin IP address since Cloudflare doesn’t proxy email connections.

Then if I delete the record will my IP become hidden?

Sure, but then you won’t be able to receive email for that domain.
