Red face POP3.mydomain.com and SMTP.mydomain.com not working

Hi,
I am able to receive emails in outlook express using either www.mydomain.com or server1.mydomain.com but pop3.mydomain.com doesn't work so is smtp.mydomain.com for sending mails.

DNS records in ISPconfig Box

A Record
Hostname www
IP 192.168.1.254
Hostname server1
IP 192.168.1.254

CName
Hostname pop3
Target www
Hostname smtp
Target www

MX record
www.mydomain.com


Configuration at my domain registrar's Cpanel
A Record
www.mydomain.com 12.34.56.78 (my static IP assigned in router)
server1.mydomain.com 12.34.56.78

CName
pop3.mydomain.com www.mydomain.com
smtp.mydomain.com www.mydomain.com

MX record
server1.mydomain.com

if i use pop.mydomain.com in outlook express for receiving mails it returns this error
The host 'pop3.mydomain.com.com' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'Work', Server: 'pop3.mydomain.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 11004, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

www.mydomain or server1.mydomain.com works fine.
I am able to ping both pop3.mydomain and smtp.mydomain.com from another machine(win) in my LAN if it's DNS server is set to my ISP DNS servers but it fails if the DNS server is set to ISPconfig Box.

port forwarding is also done for ports 25,110,995.
How can i fix this?

Try this.

Remove the CNAME (pop3/smtp), and re-create it as an A record.
