When you have a website hosting plan and you create an email address, you might take the option to send and receive messages for granted, however, this is not always the case. Sending email messages isn't necessarily included in the web hosting plans that companies offer and an SMTP service is required to be able to do that. The acronym signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that enables you to send e-mails. If you use an e-mail app, it connects 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 e-mails. After system information is swapped, 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 are using some sort of contact page form too, so in case you work with a free of charge hosting plan, for example, it's probable that you will not have the ability to use this type of form since many cost-free website hosting service providers don't allow outgoing e-mail messages.
