Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is the de facto standard for email transmissions across the Internet. SMTP is a relatively simple, text-based protocol, where one or more recipients of a message are specified (and in most cases verified to exist) and then the message text is transferred. It is a client-server protocol, where the client transmits an email message to the server.
