When you have a web hosting account and you create an email address, you may consider the option to send out and receive messages for granted, but in fact, this isn't always the case. Sending e-mails isn't necessarily a part of the web hosting plans that service providers have and an SMTP service is required to be capable to do that. The abbreviation means Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the software application that enables you to send e-mails. If you are using an e-mail app, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then requests the DNS data of the domain name, that is a part of the receiving address to find out what email server deals with its email messages. After some system data is interchanged, your SMTP server provides the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the email is finally delivered in the corresponding mailbox. An SMTP server is required if you work with some sort of contact form also, so if you have a no charge hosting package, as an example, it is very likely that you won't have the ability to use this type of form as many free hosting providers do not allow outgoing e-mails.
