When you've got a cloud website hosting account and you set up an email address, you might consider the option to send out and receive messages for granted, but in fact, this is not always true. Sending emails is not always part of the hosting plans that service providers will offer you and an SMTP service is needed to be able to do that. The abbreviation stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the piece of software that enables you to send e-mails. If you are using an email application, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS data of the domain, that is a part of the receiving address to find out which mail server manages its email messages. After some system information is swapped, your SMTP server provides the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and the email is finally delivered in the corresponding mailbox. An SMTP server is required if you work with some kind of contact form as well, so in case you use a free hosting plan, for example, it is likely that you won't have the ability to use this type of form since many free website hosting providers do not allow outgoing e-mail messages.
