When you've got a shared hosting plan and you create an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send out and receive messages for granted, but in fact, this is not always true. Sending email messages isn't necessarily included in the website hosting plans that service providers feature and an SMTP service is required to be capable to do that. The abbreviation signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the software application that enables you to send e-mails. If you work with an e-mail application, it connects 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 email server manages its emails. After some system data is interchanged, your SMTP server provides the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you use some kind of contact form as well, so if you have a free hosting plan, as an example, it's probable that you won't have the ability to use such a form since many cost-free website hosting providers do not allow outgoing emails.
