If you have a shared web hosting account and you set up an email address, you might take the option to send and receive messages for granted, however, that isn't always the case. Sending emails isn't necessarily included in the hosting packages that providers offer and an SMTP service is needed to be capable to do that. The abbreviation means Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the piece of software that permits you to send emails. If you use an email app, it creates a connection 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 what mail server manages its email messages. After some system data is swapped, your SMTP server delivers the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and the email is finally delivered in the corresponding mailbox. An SMTP server is necessary if you work with some kind of contact form too, so if you use a free hosting package, for example, it is very likely that you won't be able to make use of such a form as most free of charge website hosting companies don't allow outgoing emails.
