    You need to correctly configure MX records. Create a subdomain which does not get proxied, i.e. mail.example.com

    Then setup
    example.com MX 10 mail.example.com

    Don't cloud flare your mx record.

    I mean the subdomain you use to attach mx record.

    Cpanel and cloudflare have some issues with webmail URLs, assuming you're accessing cpanel through cloudflare.

    We end up seeing things like webmail.lv-shared01.cpanelplatform.com be used by it instead of the correct one.

    I got a ticket with cpanel about it but they weren't interested in fixing it a while back due to how they handle things.

  • You can always set cloudflare to bypass the subdomains you want directly accessed. Which in your case is mail.yourdomain.com and/or smtp.yourdomain.com

    In cpanel right?

  • Keep in mind that setting your MX records to NOT be proxied is basically exposing the backend ip of your server, thus nullifying the CF ddos protection.

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

    What does this have to do with cPanel’s webmail?

    With webmail? Absolutely nothing. Why should it?

    ... because the OP is asking a question about using cPanel’s webmail and CloudFlare together?

    Don't think so, I understood it as email not getting delivered to their server because they were proxying everything, including MX target.

  • @FHR Ah, thanks. Didn’t read the post completely.

  • I have integrated Cloudflare in to cPanel for my clients and it has worked perfectly providing DNS Zones are setup correctly.
