SMTP, which is short for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the software that enables you to send e-mails from your email addresses. Without it, you will not be able to use email apps or webmail. Once you send an email, your SMTP server connects to a DNS server to learn exactly where emails for the recipient domain name are taken care of. Then, it connects to the remote mail server and exchanges information. In case the recipient mailbox is present, your server sends the email to the receiving POP/IMAP server and the latter delivers that email to the particular mailbox in which the recipient can access it. If you'd like to be able to send e-mails, it is best to make sure that the web hosting company provides the service with their packages. Even if you use an online form that site visitors use to contact you, you still require an active SMTP server for your hosting account for the web form to work.
