SMTP is short for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and it is used to transfer e-mail messages between computers.
An SMTP server performs two functions:
You have several options depending on the number of emails you are going to send daily.
SMTP from Your Internet Service Provider
Internet Service Providers usually prevent customers from sending out too many emails in a too short period of time. They achieve this by:
Visit your ISP’s website and look for pages like Acceptable Use Policies, Terms of Service, etc. to find out more.
Web-based email services with SMTP support
Many web-based email services support SMTP protocol, so you can use products like Atomic Mail Sender to send mass email. Just like ISPs, they have outgoing mail restrictions (for example, Gmail lets you send not more than 500 emails a day). Luckily, Atomic Mail Sender and Atomic Email Studio support the use of multiple SMTP accounts, and they can be used sequentially: first email goes through server1, second goes through server2, etc.
SMTP and Your Hosting
If you have a website you probably can send email through the SMTP server that comes with your website. Of course you might want to use a different hosting company, not the one that hosts your website.
Third-party SMTP services

Virtual private server (VPS)
A virtual private server (VPS) or virtual dedicated server (VDS) is a great solution for emailing without limitations. A word of warning first, this method is not for newbies - you should be able to manage a Windows server (or hire somebody who can). Your server will have a unique IP address and the hosting company does not really care what you do with your server, especially if you go offshore. We have positive feedback from our clients about this Malaysian VPS hosting.
