any service I can particularly recommend, but Google used to have
gratis mail hosting, and they probably still do it cheaply.
Success at mail self-hosting is possible, but it will require more
from you than perhaps you are willing to invest? And then it will
need care and feeding, such as for spam control, and quick action
when something goes wrong (suppose your server has a hardware
failure, for example.)
That said, I'll continue and try to point you to ways to find the
answers to your questions.

tell us some things:
1. Your system accepted and relayed for you (thus why Carsten,
quoted above, was wrong.)
2. Mail addressed to me@... was relayed to host
3. host mail.joeswebsite.com[76.xx.yy.zz] has joeswebsite.com
listed in its $mydestination, but no Unix user nor alias of
"me" was found.
Either you have used someone's real domain as your example (don't
do that!) or something is wrong with DNS:
joeswebsite.com. 14400 IN MX 0 joeswebsite.com.
joeswebsite.com. 14400 IN A 184.108.40.206
mail.joeswebsite.com. 14400 IN CNAME joeswebsite.com.
This should have gone to joeswebsite.com[220.127.116.11] and not to
mail.joeswebsite.com. (It happens to be the same address, but the
actual MX value would have been logged.) Your munged address was
clearly not 18.104.22.168.
