SMTP, which is an acronym for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the software that permits you to send out e-mail messages from your email addresses. Without this, you will not be able to use e-mail applications or webmail. Whenever you send an e-mail, your SMTP server connects to a DNS server to determine where the emails for the recipient domain are handled. Subsequently, it connects to the remote mail server and exchanges information. If the recipient mail box is present, your server sends the e-mail to the receiving POP/IMAP server and the latter delivers that email to the particular mailbox where the recipient can find it. If you want to be able to send emails, you should always make sure that the hosting company offers the service with their packages. Even though you use an online form that visitors use to get hold of you, you will still need an active SMTP server for your hosting account for the form to function.
