All emails which are not addressed to the domains configured for your server, must be relayed to the correct mail server.

POP3 and SMTP are standard email protocols, you can read more about these protocols here:

To be able to configure a mail server you must understand how it works.
And how it interacts with other mail servers and the DNS server.
