This record is exposing

I just added my website to Cloudflare and I am receiving a warning for one record. In MX record for the name the warning says:
This record is exposing your origin server’s IP address, potentially exposing it to denial of service.

I couldn’t overcome the problem via Cloudflare support at

May anyone help me out pleas?

That’s normal if you host email on the same server as your website. Cloudflare doesn’t proxy email, so that record needs to be exposed in order for email to work.
