SMTP, which is short for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the software that allows you to send e-mails from your email addresses. Without it, you won't be able to use e-mail applications or webmail. After you send a message, your SMTP server creates a connection to a DNS server to learn exactly where e-mails for the recipient domain are managed. Then, it connects to the remote email server and trades details. If the recipient mailbox is present, your server transmits the email to the receiving POP/IMAP server and the latter brings that message to the precise mailbox where the recipient can access it. If you would like to be able to send emails, it is best to make sure that the hosting company has the service with their plans. Even if you make use of online form that visitors use to contact you, you'll still need an active SMTP server for your hosting account for the web form to function.
