When you have a shared website hosting plan and you set up an email address, you may consider the option to send and receive emails for granted, however, this isn't always true. Sending email messages isn't always included in the website hosting packages that companies offer and an SMTP service is needed to be capable to do that. The acronym stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the piece of software that permits you to send out emails. If you work with an email program, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then searches the DNS data of the domain, which is a part of the receiving address to find out which email server handles its email messages. After system information is swapped, your SMTP server delivers the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and the email is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you are using some kind of contact form also, so in case you work with a cost-free hosting plan, as an example, it is very likely that you won't be able to use this type of form since many free of charge website hosting companies do not allow outgoing email messages.
