Currently I have a domain with multiple public IPs, Example:

fakory.com -> 190.6.206.171 / Webserver PC1
fs3.fakory.com -> 190.6.206.173 / Mail Server PC2

I have tried to address test@fs3.fakory.com receive mails and working properly.

But when I try to receive emails from test@fakory.com failed to receive anything :( any Help??

Yep -- you need to create an MX record in DNS for fakory.com to point to your mail server:

wikipedia entry for MX

How do to this will depend on what is serving your DNS, but it should be a very basic operation. It looks like you already have an MX record for fs3.fakory.com -- you want that same data in an MX record for fakory.com to get emails send to your domain to route properly.
