In case you have a web hosting package and you set up an e-mail address, you may take the option to send out and receive emails for granted, but in fact, this is not always true. Sending emails is not necessarily part of the web hosting plans that providers offer and an SMTP service is needed to be capable to do that. The abbreviation signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the piece of software that enables you to send e-mail messages. If you work with an e-mail application, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS records of the domain, that is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server handles its email messages. After some system information is swapped, your SMTP server delivers the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is necessary if you use some kind of contact page form as well, so in case you work with a cost-free hosting package, for example, it is very likely that you will not have the ability to use this type of form as many free of charge web hosting providers do not allow outgoing e-mail messages.
