First let we see , What is SMTP?


  • SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. 
          [ In general Protocol means a set of rules. ]

  • These set of rules helps to send email to mail server.
  • Let we see with an example . Assume a person named " Pat " and he is using Gmail . Also assume that Pat is using email client Outlook. 
For perfect connection , Pat configured Outlook which also includes the settings of Gmail Server Settings.
After the successfull configuration , Pat can send mail through Outlook. Now Assuming sending a mail to his friend (Assume Pat's friend has Yahoo Account)., the Outlook at first sends email address of both sender and receiver and also the message to Google's SMTP Server.

Now Google SMTP Server locates out Yahoo SMTP Server (because Pat'sFriend using Yahoo) and the email will be available here.When Pat's Friend opens his yahoo mail,  the email in  Yahoo SMTP Server will only exit if the Pat's friend receives the email.
