When you've got a cloud hosting plan and you create an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send out and receive messages for granted, however, this isn't always true. Sending emails isn't necessarily part of the website hosting packages that service providers feature and an SMTP service is required to be capable to do that. The abbreviation signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that enables you to send emails. If you use an e-mail application, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then searches the DNS data of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out which email server deals with its emails. After some system information is interchanged, your SMTP server delivers the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the email is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you use some sort of contact form as well, so if you work with a cost-free hosting plan, for instance, it's probable that you won't be able to use such a form as most free hosting service providers don't allow outgoing email messages.
