SMTP, which stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the software that allows you to send out e-mail messages from your email addresses. Without this, you won't be able to use e-mail applications or webmail. After you send an email, your SMTP server creates a connection to a DNS server to determine where the e-mails for the recipient domain name are taken care of. Then, it creates a connection to the remote email server and trades details. In case the recipient mailbox exists, your server transmits the message to the receiving POP/IMAP server and the latter delivers that message to the particular mailbox where the receiver can access it. If you'd like to send e-mails, you should always make sure that the website hosting company offers the service with their packages. Even though you make use of online form that visitors use to make contact with you, you will still require an active SMTP server for your hosting account for the web form to operate.
