Warning when using MX & AorCNAME record for email setup

My email is not coming through unless I have a MX record, and an A or CNAME record. But when I use them both, it gives me the warning that I am exposing my domain. What do I do?

Thanks,

That happens when you host mail and websites on the same server. Cloudflare doesn’t proxy email, so it has to expose that IP address.

It doesn’t break anything, but if attackers really want to, they can bypass Cloudflare to attack your website. This doesn’t happen often.
