If you have a shared web hosting account and you set up an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send and receive emails for granted, however, that isn't always the case. Sending e-mails isn't always part of the hosting packages that service providers feature and an SMTP service is necessary to be capable to do that. The abbreviation signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that enables you to send e-mail messages. If you are using an email program, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then searches the DNS records of the domain, which is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server manages its email messages. After 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 corresponding mailbox. An SMTP server is required if you work with some sort of contact page form as well, so in case you use a no charge hosting plan, for instance, it's probable that you will not be able to make use of such a form since many free of charge website hosting providers don't allow outgoing email messages.
