host means host - quite simple.
From: host:mail.example.com yes
reads like this :
If a mail comes from host mail.example.com (no matter what sender domain
is used) then hand over "yes" to the related variable.
From: mail.example.com yes
From: *@mail.example.com yes
read the same
If a mail comes from domain mail.example.com then hand over "yes"
From: *@example.com yes
this handles only mails from example.com, the mail.example.com domain
has to be handeled separately
From: *@*.example.com yes
and this handles mails from any subdomain of example.com but not
directly from example.com
From: *@*example.com yes
this handles mails from example.com and its subdomains but also from
anyexample.com, myexample.com, dumbexample.com ......
