Please Clarify this Statement for me...The (final) Project Scope Statement describes in detail all the work that needs to be done, and only the work that needs to be done, to deliver the product within specified features and functions.

i found this in a text.. but doesn't it only contain work that needs to be done or also work that does not have to be done also?

Yes, in the project scope you need to specify the features that you want in the final product, and those that you do not want.

For example, let's say you are building an Intranet for your website, but you don't want to have any email integration in the Intranet (which is something common to have), so you write, in your project scope, that the final product will not have any email integration.

This is very important, as such functionality might be perceived by someone, at some point during the course of the project, that it's a missing requirement that should have been there in the first place.
