(Both options will minimize the number of checklist tasks you will need to do later.)
If you opt to just configure the mailbox servers, you will have to do the checklist tasks to integrate your mailbox server configuration into your main PMDF-MTA configuration.
Click on the Configure button for IMAP/POP Servers to begin the configuration. (See Chapter 5, specifically Figures 5-9 through Figure 5-15, for a sample configuration session.)
