SMTP, which is short for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the software that enables you to send out messages from your email addresses. Without it, you won't be able to use email apps or webmail. When you send an e-mail, your SMTP server creates a connection to a DNS server to discover where the emails for the recipient domain are managed. Then, it connects to the remote mail server and exchanges details. In case the recipient mailbox is available, your server sends the e-mail to the receiving POP/IMAP server and the latter brings that message to the precise mailbox in which the recipient can find it. If you wish to send e-mails, it is best to make certain that the web hosting company provides the service with their packages. Even though you use an online form that visitors use to get hold of you, you'll still require an active SMTP server for your hosting account for the web form to work.
