When you've got a web hosting account and you create an e-mail address, you might take the option to send out and receive messages for granted, but in fact, this isn't always true. Sending e-mail messages is not necessarily part of the hosting plans that service providers feature and an SMTP service is needed to be able to do that. The acronym represents Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the software application that allows you to send out e-mails. If you work with an email application, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS records of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out which email server handles its e-mails. After some system information is exchanged, your SMTP server delivers the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the e-mail is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you are using some kind of contact form also, so in case you use a cost-free hosting package, for instance, it's probable that you won't be able to use such a form as most free of charge web hosting companies do not allow outgoing e-mail messages.
