Like the descriptions that come with each setting in the interface?

You have two options: either you use Horde because of it's tremendous  
flexibility, one sign for that are "732" tabs of configuration. Or you  
hope the best that we picked sane defaults for each setting (we did).  
But please don't come back then to ask each time if this or that  
feature would possible, until you've really gone through all  
configuration options.

That's perfectly sane and best practice for *any* staging of services  
into production.
