When you have a cloud hosting account and you set up an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send out and receive emails for granted, but in fact, this isn't always true. Sending e-mails isn't necessarily included in the web hosting plans that companies will offer you and an SMTP service is required to be able to do that. The abbreviation stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that permits you to send out emails. If you use an email app, 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 mail server handles its e-mails. After system information is interchanged, your SMTP server delivers the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is necessary if you work with some kind of contact page too, so in case you have a no charge hosting package, as an example, it is very likely that you will not be able to make use of such a form since many free of charge hosting companies don't allow outgoing e-mail messages.
