SMTP is a simple protocol for transferring email over TCP/IP networks.

Mail servers use SMTP to send and receive emails, while email clients usually use SMTP only for sending email messages to a mail server for their further delivery.

An SMTP server is a mail server that only supports the sending of emails. Using one, you can send email from anywhere.
