When you have a website hosting plan and you create an email address, you might take the option to send out and receive messages for granted, but in fact, this is not always true. Sending e-mail messages is not always included in the hosting packages that providers feature and an SMTP service is necessary to be capable to do that. The abbreviation signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the piece of software that enables you to send out e-mails. If you work with an e-mail app, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then looks up the DNS data of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server handles its email messages. After some system data is swapped, your SMTP server provides the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the e-mail is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you are using some sort of contact page form as well, so in case you have a free hosting plan, for example, it is likely that you won't be able to make use of this type of form as most free of charge hosting service providers do not allow outgoing email messages.
