When you have a cloud web hosting package and you set up an email address, you might consider the option to send out and receive emails for granted, but in fact, that isn't always true. Sending e-mail messages is not necessarily part of the website hosting packages that providers feature and an SMTP service is necessary to be capable to do that. The acronym stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the software application that enables you to send e-mails. If you work with an e-mail application, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS records of the domain name, that is a part of the receiving address to find out which email server handles its emails. After some system data is exchanged, your SMTP server provides the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the e-mail is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is necessary if you are using some kind of contact page form as well, so in case you have a free hosting package, as an example, it's probable that you won't be able to use this type of form as most no charge web hosting providers do not allow outgoing e-mails.
