In case you have a web hosting account and you create an e-mail address, you may take the option to send out and receive messages for granted, however, this isn't always the case. Sending e-mails isn't necessarily a part of the website hosting plans that service providers feature and an SMTP service is necessary to be able to do that. The abbreviation stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that allows you to send e-mails. If you use an email app, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then requests the DNS data of the domain name, that is a part of the receiving address to find out which email server handles its emails. After some system data is exchanged, your SMTP server provides the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is necessary if you are using some kind of contact page form too, so if you work with a no charge hosting package, for example, it's probable that you won't have the ability to make use of this type of form as many free of charge hosting providers do not allow outgoing e-mails.
