In case you have a shared web hosting package and you create an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send and receive messages for granted, but in fact, that isn't always the case. Sending emails is not necessarily part of the web hosting packages that service providers feature and an SMTP service is needed to be capable to do that. The acronym represents Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the piece of software that enables you to send e-mail messages. If you are using an e-mail app, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then looks up the DNS records of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out which email server deals with its e-mails. After some system data is exchanged, your SMTP server delivers 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 are using some sort of contact page form also, so in case you work with a free hosting plan, as an example, it is very likely that you will not have the ability to use such a form since many cost-free web hosting companies don't allow outgoing e-mails.
