Set up email records

To set up MX records for your domain in Cloudflare, follow these steps. It’s worth noting that there are two main reasons for setting up email records for your domain. Firstly, to ensure email delivery to your mail server, and secondly, to prevent other senders from spoofing your domain.

  1. An A or AAAA record for your mail subdomain that points to the IP address of your mail server.

Name

IPv4 address

Proxy status

  1. An MX record that points to that subdomain.

To configure email security records for your domain:

  1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboardOpen external link and select your domain.

  2. Go to DNS.

  3. For Email Security, click Configure.

  • If your domain sends email, use the available options to set up SPF, DKIM, and DMARC records.

  • If your domain does not send email, use the Your domain is not used to send email section to set up restrictive email records.
