Edge server Install and configurations

We are going to deploy and edge transport server for exchange 2010 sp1. Currently we have two exchange servers, first server has the CAS and Hub transport, the second server is the Mailbox server.

Now I need to deploy the edge. However, one article I have read confuses me, it states "you have to configure Anti-Spam, Receive Connectors, Send Connectors, Transport Rules, Accepted Domains tabs available in Edge Transport console. on Anti-Spam tab, you have to configure Content Filtering, IP Allow List, IP Allow List Providers, IP Block List, IP Block List Providers, Recipient Filtering, Sender Filtering, Sender ID and Sender Reputation through action pan."

All the above are currently configured on the CAS/Hub server role, so when I install edge do all these settings get migrated to the edge or do I need to do this again?

Can someone please explain?

After you install an Edge Server all the email for your organization come trough Edge server first and it's redirected to your HUB server. Really good article on how to install and configure Edge: http://www.testlabs.se/blog/2011/05/30/how-to-setup-and-configure-exchange-2010-edge-transport-server-role/

Another good reading is this two part article:

it's about 2007 Edge by you get the idea.
