What's an SMTP server? Why exactly is the SMTP protocol e-mail transmission-critical?
If you need to send e-mails using an email address with your own domain, make sure that the provider will provide you with access to their SMTP server. The latter is the software that enables email messages to be dispatched. SMTP is an acronym for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and it addresses all outgoing email messages from applications, webmail and contact forms. Whenever a message is sent, the SMTP server checks with all of the DNS servers around the world where the emails for the receiving domain are handled and when it gets this data, it will connect into the remote POP/IMAP server to find out if the recipient mail box is available. If it does, the SMTP server directs the e-mail body and then the receiving server sends it to the mailbox in which the recipient can open it and see it. With no SMTP server on your server, you will not be capable to mail out e-mails at all.
