I'm trying to set up Office365 for my website's DNS through cPanel, but cPanel is adding the local domain to the CNAME (and other) values I'm setting.

eg When I specify the value for the lyncdiscover CNAME to be webdir.online.lync.com and save it, it gets automatically changed to webdir.online.lync.com.mydomain.co.nz

How can I get it to save the correct setting?

Just add a . character at the end of the value. ie for the given example use value webdir.online.lync.com.
