In case you have a hosting package and you set up an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send out and receive emails for granted, but in fact, this isn't always true. Sending e-mails isn't always a part of the web hosting packages that service providers offer and an SMTP service is required to be able to do that. The acronym signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the set of scripts that enables you to send e-mails. If you work with an e-mail application, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS data of the domain, which is a part of the receiving address to find out what email server deals with its emails. After system data is exchanged, your SMTP server provides the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and the email is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you use some kind of contact page form as well, so in case you have a cost-free hosting package, as an example, it is very likely that you will not have the ability to use such a form as many free website hosting service providers do not allow outgoing e-mails.
