When you have a website hosting package and you create an e-mail address, you may take the option to send and receive emails for granted, however, this is not always true. Sending emails is not always a part of the hosting packages that service providers have and an SMTP service is needed to be capable to do that. The acronym represents Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the set of scripts that enables you to send out e-mail messages. If you work with an e-mail app, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then looks up the DNS records of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out which mail server handles its e-mails. After system information is interchanged, your SMTP server delivers the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and the email is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you work with some kind of contact page as well, so in case you work with a free hosting package, for instance, it is likely that you won't be able to make use of this type of form since many no charge web hosting companies don't allow outgoing e-mails.
