In case you have a hosting plan and you set up an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send and receive emails for granted, but in fact, this isn't always true. Sending emails is not necessarily included in the web hosting plans that companies feature and an SMTP service is needed to be capable to do that. The abbreviation signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the set of scripts that permits you to send emails. If you are using an email application, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then requests the DNS records of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out which mail server deals with its e-mails. After system information is exchanged, your SMTP server delivers the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and the email is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you work with some kind of contact page too, so if you work with a free hosting plan, for instance, it is very likely that you won't be able to use this type of form as most free of charge hosting service providers do not allow outgoing email messages.
