SMTP, which stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the software that permits you to send e-mails from your email addresses. Without it, you won't be able to use e-mail applications or webmail. When you send an email, your SMTP server connects to a DNS server to learn exactly where emails for the recipient domain are handled. After that, it connects to the remote mail server and exchanges information. If the recipient mailbox is available, your server sends the message to the receiving POP/IMAP server and the latter delivers that email to the specific mailbox where the receiver can find it. If you want to send e-mails, you should always ensure that the web hosting company provides the service with their plans. Even though you use an online form that visitors use to get hold of you, you'll still need an active SMTP server for your hosting account for the form to work.
