In case you have a website hosting account and you set up an e-mail address, you might take the option to send and receive emails for granted, but in fact, this isn't always the case. Sending emails isn't necessarily part of the web hosting packages that companies will offer you and an SMTP service is necessary to be able to do that. The abbreviation signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that enables you to send out emails. If you are using an e-mail program, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then requests the DNS data of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out which email server manages its email messages. After some system data is interchanged, your SMTP server delivers the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is necessary if you use some sort of contact form also, so in case you work with a free of charge hosting package, for instance, it's probable that you will not be able to make use of such a form as many free of charge website hosting companies don't allow outgoing e-mail messages.
