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..
