    Hi,
    I've hosted domains and their DNS at CloudFlare, is it a good idea to use autodiscover and autoconfig dns records so email clients can use them or this is not useful?
    My current email clients are working well when configuring their incoming and outgoing servers, where it is not difficult to do that manually, but just in case these records are helpful I'll create them.
    Thank you.

    I've read the article many times, but what I want is to ensure if these are useful, can I create them manually without enable the subdomain services in Teak ?

    You can create them manually but you'll need to add the host you want published by enabling:
    In tweak settings

    You'll also need to enable the setting:

    Code:
    Thunderbird and Outlook autodiscover and autoconfig support (enables service subdomain and SRV record creation) 
    Or manually add the SRV records to all of your domains DNS zone files
