Cloudflare DNS not accepting my AWS Workmail MX Value


I am moving my email away from godaddy to AWS workmail for my domain. My domain is still registered at godaddy with DNS at Cloudflare. I get the following error message "DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004) Content for MX record must be a hostname." When adding the MX value given my AWs workmail to my cloudflare DNS. Below is the value from from AWS.
