When you have a shared website hosting plan and you create an email address, you might consider the option to send and receive messages for granted, however, this is not always the case. Sending emails is not necessarily part of the web hosting plans that service providers feature and an SMTP service is necessary to be able to do that. The acronym stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and that is the piece of software that allows you to send e-mails. If you are using an e-mail application, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS records of the domain name, that is a part of the receiving address to find out which mail server manages its e-mails. After system data is exchanged, your SMTP server provides the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and the email is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is necessary if you work with some kind of contact page as well, so in case you work with a free hosting plan, for instance, it is very likely that you won't have the ability to use such a form as many cost-free hosting providers do not allow outgoing e-mails.
