When you've got a website hosting account and you create an email address, you might take the option to send out and receive emails for granted, but in fact, that isn't always the case. Sending e-mails is not necessarily included in the website hosting packages that providers feature and an SMTP service is necessary to be able to do that. The abbreviation means Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the set of scripts that enables you to send out e-mail messages. If you work with an e-mail app, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then requests the DNS records of the domain, that is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server deals with its email messages. After some system information is swapped, your SMTP server delivers the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the e-mail is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you use some kind of contact form too, so in case you have a cost-free hosting plan, for instance, it is likely that you won't be able to use such a form since many free hosting companies do not allow outgoing email messages.
