In case you have a hosting account and you create an e-mail address, you might consider the option to send out and receive messages for granted, however, that isn't always the case. Sending e-mail messages is not always a part of the website hosting packages that companies will offer you and an SMTP service is necessary to be able to do that. The acronym means Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the piece of software that allows you to send e-mails. If you are using an email program, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS data of the domain, that is a part of the receiving address to find out which mail server manages its emails. After some system information is interchanged, your SMTP server delivers the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the corresponding mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you work with some kind of contact page form as well, so if you work with a cost-free hosting plan, for example, it is likely that you won't have the ability to use this type of form as most cost-free website hosting providers do not allow outgoing emails.
