Doesn't that only work if ALL mails for the domain go to that host, then that host uses the rules defined on the control panel to forward some of them elsewhere?

I'm confused. The OP was NOT asking about subdomains.

The article IS about defining different DNS records for domains and their subdomains.

Could you explain why? It seems to me that if someone "hacks into" someone's FM account, they already know the password ... so can easily change the script.
