When you've got a cloud web hosting account and you set up an e-mail address, you might consider the option to send and receive messages for granted, however, this is not always true. Sending email messages is not always included in the website hosting plans that companies offer and an SMTP service is required to be able to do that. The acronym stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that enables you to send out e-mails. If you use an email application, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then searches the DNS data of the domain, that is a part of the receiving address to find out what email server handles its e-mails. After system information is exchanged, your SMTP server delivers the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is required if you are using some kind of contact form also, so in case you have a free hosting plan, as an example, it is very likely that you will not be able to make use of this type of form since many free of charge hosting companies don't allow outgoing e-mails.
