    Hello,

    You could create an "A" record for "mail.yourdomain.tld" pointing to the IP address associated with the cPanel server and then configure your MX records to use "mail.yourdomain.tld".

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    You'd need to update the MX record so it points to wherever the email for the domain name is hosted. If it's the cPanel server, then you'd need to setup a record with CloudFlare (e.g. mail.domain.tld) that directs traffic to the cPanel server. You may want to contact your web hosting provider for assistance in finding out the IP address of the mail server.

    Thank you.
