It is an automated account setup utility basically. You can add an account there and it automatically configures mail, calendar and instant messaging. So for example if you add your google account there, it will automatically set up the gmail IMAP server settings for your account in evolution, add your google calendar in evolution calendar and your google chat to empathy.
