When you've got a web hosting account and you create an e-mail address, you might take the option to send and receive messages for granted, but in fact, that isn't always true. Sending e-mail messages isn't always a part of the web hosting plans that companies have and an SMTP service is necessary to be capable to do that. The acronym stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the piece of software that allows you to send emails. If you work with an e-mail application, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS records of the domain name, that is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server deals with its e-mails. After some system data is interchanged, your SMTP server provides the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the e-mail is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you are using some kind of contact page form too, so in case you have a free of charge hosting plan, as an example, it is very likely that you will not have the ability to make use of this type of form as many free of charge website hosting service providers don't allow outgoing e-mail messages.
