There instructions do not, unfortunately cover eNom, but, what is needed is this ...
"Your goal is to achieve the following result:
All mail directed to newthings.phillw.net

It looks like you need to create a sub domain with a CNAME address of mx6.mapipro.com
To set this up, under Host Name use newthings with a Record Type of CNAME and the Address of mx6.mapipro.com
If you have any additional questions regarding this matter, please let us know.
Thank you for choosing us as your domain name registrar, we appreciate your business.
