Like I said, if you don't know what they are you don't need them, (hint: 
they are both two totally different things, you might as well be saying 
apache or mysql, or maybe evolution or mplayer) as one works without the 
other, one is a sending email the other is a pop3 server. If you did not 
know that (not being a smart ass by the way) then, again, you don't need 
either, as you probably  use a email client to talk direct to your ISP, or 
browser to use GMail etc..
