After setting up Cloudflare, Thunderbird can no longer find my domain email account. It did previously, so I thought to remove that account in Thunderbird and set it up again, hoping it would find it. It didn’t.
Tried to include an image showing Thunderbird setup, but as I’m new I’m not allowed to.
I followed this article to set up email records: Unfortunately not allowed to include a link either!! developers[.]Cloudflare[.]com/dns/manage-dns-records/how-to/email-records/
