If you have a web hosting plan and you set up an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send out and receive messages for granted, however, this is not always the case. Sending e-mail messages isn't always part of the web hosting packages that service providers offer and an SMTP service is required to be able to do that. The acronym represents Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the set of scripts that enables you to send out emails. If you are using an email app, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS data of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server manages its e-mails. After some system data is interchanged, your SMTP server delivers the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is required if you work with some kind of contact page form also, so if you work with a free hosting plan, as an example, it's probable that you will not have the ability to make use of such a form as most cost-free hosting providers do not allow outgoing e-mail messages.
