When you've got a cloud website hosting account and you create an email address, you might take the option to send out and receive emails for granted, but in fact, this is not always true. Sending e-mail messages isn't necessarily part of the hosting packages that providers have and an SMTP service is necessary to be able to do that. The acronym stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the set of scripts that permits you to send email messages. If you work with an e-mail application, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then looks up the DNS records of the domain, that is a part of the receiving address to find out which mail server manages its emails. After system information is swapped, your SMTP server delivers the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and then the e-mail is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you work with some kind of contact form also, so in case you work with a cost-free hosting plan, for instance, it's probable that you will not have the ability to use such a form as many no charge web hosting service providers do not allow outgoing emails.
