When you have a cloud web hosting package and you set up an e-mail address, you might consider the option to send out and receive messages for granted, but in fact, this is not always the case. Sending e-mails is not necessarily part of the web hosting plans that companies feature and an SMTP service is needed to be able to do that. The acronym signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the piece of software that enables you to send emails. If you are using an e-mail application, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then searches the DNS data of the domain name, that is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server manages its email messages. After system data is interchanged, your SMTP server delivers the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the corresponding mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you are using some kind of contact form also, so if you have a free of charge hosting package, for example, it is very likely that you will not be able to make use of such a form as most cost-free hosting providers don't allow outgoing e-mail messages.
