WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I have a domain that is managed by Gandi. The nameservers are pointed to CloudFlare. The CloudFlare records point to Webfaction's IP address.

How I should handle MX records for this domain? I would like to accept mails at mail@mydomain.com and forward it to my Gmail account.

I guess I need to add a MX record to CloudFlare to explain what to do with mail? And maybe a Webfaction mailbox?

You would need to point your MX records to our mail servers if you want us to handle mail for the domain. Once that is done you would need to create an email address and mailbox on our servers.
