Use SMTP not POP if you want to keep copies on the server.

Check out Gordaen’s Knowledge, the blog, and the MR2 page.

Don’t you mean IMAP?

I need SMTP and POP to configure outlook, in this case: mail.mydomain.com both.

No you don’t. Outlook works just fine with IMAP.

Outlook actually has a wizard you can use for setting up email accounts, regardless of whether they are POP or IMAP. On the page of the wizard where you would normally put your mail server information (mail.yourdomain.com), make sure you choose IMAP instead of POP3. It isn’t rocket science.
