In case you have a cloud website hosting account and you set up an e-mail address, you might consider the option to send and receive messages for granted, however, this isn't always the case. Sending emails isn't always part of the web hosting packages that companies offer and an SMTP service is required to be able to do that. The abbreviation means Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the software application that enables you to send out e-mails. If you are using an email app, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then searches the DNS data of the domain, that is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server manages its e-mails. After system data is interchanged, your SMTP server provides the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is necessary if you work with some sort of contact page form also, so in case you work with a free hosting plan, for instance, it's probable that you won't be able to make use of this type of form as most cost-free hosting service providers do not allow outgoing email messages.
