well that's a pretty good description... shouldn't you be the one telling us? How do you want mail to work? What mail services do you have at your disposal?? If in doubt just choose the first option and do nothing, but I have no idea how your system does anything.

Note that this is nothing to do with Virtualization, and should shortly be moved to a more suitable location in the forum.

Welcome to LQ!

And while you may be installing on a virtualised platform
your question has nothing to do w/ virtualisation whatsoever,
and I'm moving it to Newbie to give it the exposure it deserves.
