When you have a shared hosting plan and you set up an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send out and receive messages for granted, however, that isn't always true. Sending e-mail messages isn't necessarily a part of the hosting packages that providers have and an SMTP service is required to be capable to do that. The abbreviation means Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the piece of software that allows you to send out e-mails. If you use 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 manages its email messages. After system information is exchanged, your SMTP server provides the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and the email is finally delivered in the corresponding mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you work with some kind of contact page form as well, so if you have a free hosting plan, for example, it's probable that you will not be able to use such a form as most free web hosting service providers don't allow outgoing e-mail messages.
