Trouble with MX Records. Using a external email hosting.
So am trying to setup email’s for my Droplet via my other shared hosting service.
I am also using Cloudflare CDN.
In Cloudflare DNS I have:
A: domain.com.au points to 123.456.789.11 (droplet IP)
A: mail points to 212.xxx.xxx.xx (external hosting IP for mail server)
CNAME: www is an alias of domain.com.au
MX: domain.com.au mail handled by mail.domain.com.au
Still nothing. Just to confirm, because my domain name server is pointing to Cloudflare. Is this all that is needed or do I need to also add the MX records to Digital Ocean Droplet.
Any help, thanks.
