In case you have a shared hosting plan and you set up an email address, you might take the option to send out and receive messages for granted, but in fact, this is not always true. Sending e-mail messages isn't necessarily part of the hosting packages that companies offer and an SMTP service is needed to be capable to do that. The acronym signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that permits you to send out email messages. If you work with an e-mail app, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS data of the domain, which is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server handles its email messages. After some system data is exchanged, your SMTP server delivers the email 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 as well, so in case you work with a free hosting package, as an example, it is likely that you won't have the ability to use such a form as many free web hosting providers don't allow outgoing e-mails.
