When you have a website hosting account and you create an email address, you may consider the option to send and receive messages for granted, but in fact, this isn't always true. Sending email messages is not necessarily included in the website hosting plans that providers feature and an SMTP service is needed to be able to do that. The abbreviation represents Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the piece of software that enables you to send out e-mails. If you are using an e-mail app, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then requests the DNS records of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out what email server manages its emails. After system data is exchanged, your SMTP server provides the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you are using some kind of contact form too, so if you use a free hosting package, as an example, it is likely that you won't be able to make use of this type of form since many no charge hosting companies do not allow outgoing emails.
