This guide will walk you through how to properly add DNS records for your custom branded email domain within Cloudflare.

These instructions will help you validate your domain after generating the CNAME records within the dashboard for the custom email domain.

What You Need to Set Up Your Custom Email Domain

Before you can begin this process, make sure you have access to the following:

How to Add DNS Records for Your Custom Email Domain

  1. From within your Cloudflare account, select the Domain you wish to access.

  2. At the top of the page, click the DNS tab and then Records.

  3. Click Add Record.

  4. For the Type, choose CNAME.

  5. In the Name field, enter the Host that was generated in the dashboard.

  6. In the Target field, enter the Value that was generated in the dashboard.

  7. If everything appears correct, select “Save”. Repeat the process two more times so all three CNAME records have been added.

With this process complete, you can now navigate back to your dashboard and Validate. If the CNAME records were input correctly, you should be all set to continue with your custom branded email domain in the dashboard!
