What is SMTP?

An iPowerWeb hosting account is a great way to become connected to the Internet. Every BusinessPro web hosting account comes with many great features such as a free domain name, a website builder, 24/7 support, and email addresses. The email addresses that come with every web hosting package are POP3 and web-based.
A typical support question we receive is "What is SMTP?" Well if you knew it had to do with email, very good!! SMTP is an acronym for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. It is a TCP/IP protocol that allows e-mail messages to be sent between servers. Most email servers use the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol to send mail. If you are looking to receive more information regarding SMTP, Email, or web hosting in general please contact our customer support department.
