If you have a shared website hosting account and you set up an email address, you might take the option to send out and receive emails for granted, but in fact, this isn't always the case. Sending e-mail messages isn't necessarily a part of the hosting plans that companies have and an SMTP service is necessary to be capable to do that. The acronym represents Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that permits you to send out email messages. If you work with an email application, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS data of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out which email server handles its email messages. After system information is interchanged, your SMTP server provides the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the e-mail is finally delivered in the corresponding mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you work with some kind of contact page as well, so if you use a no charge hosting package, for example, it is likely that you won't be able to use such a form as most free of charge website hosting providers don't allow outgoing e-mails.
