When you have a website hosting account and you create an e-mail address, you might take the option to send and receive emails for granted, however, this isn't always true. Sending e-mails isn't necessarily part of the website hosting packages that service providers will offer you 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 allows you to send out e-mail messages. If you use an e-mail application, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then looks up the DNS records of the domain name, that is a part of the receiving address to find out which mail server handles its e-mails. After system data is swapped, your SMTP server delivers the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and then 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 also, so in case you work with a free hosting plan, for instance, it's probable that you won't be able to use such a form as most cost-free website hosting providers don't allow outgoing emails.
