SMTP, which is an acronym for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the software that enables you to send out messages from your email addresses. Without this, you will not be able to use email applications or webmail. Whenever you send an email, your SMTP server connects to a DNS server to discover where the e-mails for the recipient domain name are handled. After that, it creates a connection to the remote email server and trades details. In case the recipient mail box is present, your server sends the message to the receiving POP/IMAP server and the latter delivers that email to the precise mailbox where the receiver can find it. If you want to be able to send emails, it is recommended to ensure that the hosting company offers the service with their packages. Even if you use an online form that website visitors use to contact you, you'll still require an active SMTP server for your hosting account for the form to operate.
