I know some companies use sub domains from their primary domain to send marketing emails from while others use totally separate domains.  Any pros or cons with going either setup, or is this just preference at this point.  -Newbie question.

It's best to separate your message streams for easier management.  As such, your bounces should go to something like bounces.yourdomain.com.
