First of all, my webmail sends mails but doesn't recieve'em.
I have created an mx record in my control panel (domain cp) and with my test I realized that pop3 port 110 is open, smtp port 25 is open and imap port 143 too. So can someone tell me wich is the best way to investigate? sorry but I'm learning
Second thing that don't understand is: I pointed my main domain to the server ip with an a record, if i want to point another domain using dns (ns1.mydomain.com ns2...) what should I do? I create ns1 and ns2 pointing to my server ip (I have 1 ip so I mean both to the same ip) or I point to ip of current ns1, ns2 of my domain? I mean, my current domain is pointing for exemple to ns1.domain.com (registrar dns) with ip xx.xx.xx.xxx, should i use this ip form my new ns1?
Thank you I'm just tring to learn.

# tail -f /var/log/messages for DNS or other service/system related issues
# tail -f /var/log/maillog for incoming mail events
# ls -l /var/log/ for any other event logs related to mail. Look at all of them if you need to while you're learning. (exim, dovecot, etc.)
Hosting other domains would require individual DNS zones with the NS records set to your existing NS1/NS2 nameservers. If running a single point of failure, the NS records and registrar nameservers should be set as the server's I.P. address.
