When you have a website hosting account and you set up an email address, you might consider the option to send out and receive emails for granted, however, that isn't always the case. Sending email messages isn't necessarily included in the hosting plans that providers have and an SMTP service is required to be able to do that. The abbreviation represents Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that enables you to send out e-mails. If you use an e-mail app, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then looks up the DNS records of the domain, that is a part of the receiving address to find out which mail server manages its e-mails. After some system information is exchanged, your SMTP server delivers the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the email is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you use some sort of contact page form also, so if you work with a free of charge hosting plan, for example, it is very likely that you will not have the ability to use this type of form since many no charge hosting providers do not allow outgoing e-mail messages.
