Yes.

When creating a new website and new DNS records, how do I correctly point the user's site to mail.server.com?

Easy because mail.server.com is already defined. You must only add a MX record pointing to mail.server.com for the domain client.com

Example for the domain client.com (MX dialog):

Hostname: client.com.
Mailserver hostname: mail.server.com.
Priority: 10
TTL: 86400

(please note the dots)

However I like to use mail.client.com, it's easy for the customers. It's easy to remember and easy when configure the email software. If you want to use this, add an A record for mail pointing to the mail server ip and a MX record pointing to mail.client.com.

Cheers!
