Thanks for contacting Cloudflare Support and apologize for the issues you're facing here.I have checked DNS part settings of your domain. Since Cloudflare does not proxy on port 25 (SMTP) - email service protocol by default for free customers, Cloudflare only takes its part as DNS resolver. As I check, the MX records are resolved correctly:
dig MX ctcparty.com +short
I went ahead to find the A records of
imap.homestead.com.which is the email services handled by
dig emailmg.homestead.com. +short
dig imap.homestead.com. +short
However, when I performed a basic test of SMTP capability of those IP addesses:
nc -v 18.104.22.168 25
found 0 associations
found 1 connections:
src 10.120.159.176 port 54765
dst 22.214.171.124 port 25
rank info not available
TCP aux info available
Connection to 126.96.36.199 port 25 [tcp/smtp] succeeded!
220 ESMTP Fri, 21 Sep 2018 04:04:28 -0400: UCE strictly prohibited
421 bosauthsmtp15.yourhostingaccount.com: SMTP command timeout - closing connection
nc -v 188.8.131.52 25
nc: connectx to 184.108.40.206 port 25 (tcp) failed: Connection refused
Both of them refused connection. You may need to provide the testing results above to
Homestead and ask them to check why the 25 port is not accessible for
220.127.116.11 and why
18.104.22.168 is not sending the expected response.
Hope this works for you. Please kindly let us know if you have more questions and I will be happy to assist. Thank you for using Cloudflare!
