It doesn't matter, as long as the IP address is on the same server and a public one.

Don't use ISPConfig's DNS Manager for this domain because's name servers are authoritative for this domain!

See above.

Let's say you have a user web1_test with the email address, and it has been created by ISPConfig. Your server has the IP address So in your email client (e.g. Outlook Express, Thunderbird) you use as SMTP- and POP3-server, specify web1_test as user and his password. Then you can use this account to send an email from to himself.
