SMTP, which is short for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the software that enables you to send out emails from your email addresses. Without this, you won't be able to employ e-mail apps or webmail. Every time you send a message, your SMTP server connects to a DNS server to learn where the e-mails for the recipient domain name are handled. After that, it creates a connection to the remote mail server and exchanges details. In case the recipient mail box is available, your server transmits the e-mail to the receiving POP/IMAP server and the latter delivers that e-mail to the precise mailbox in which the recipient can access it. If you wish to send e-mails, it is recommended to ensure that the hosting company offers the service with their plans. Even though you make use of online form that site visitors use to make contact with you, you'll still need an active SMTP server for your hosting account for the web form to work.
