Why SMTP Is The True Hero Behind E-Mail, Not Gmail
Email is a major part of the digital world. It is used for business, personal, and social purposes. But email has its flaws. The biggest issue being spam.
The SMTP Server is the most important component of an email server setup because it handles all incoming and outgoing messages from the server. When an SMTP Server receives a message from the Internet, it checks to make sure that the address matches one of your addresses (user@domain) and then delivers it to your inbox or spam folder depending on what you have set up in your account settings.
The reason why an SMTP server is so important is because it’s the only way to send messages between two different networks. The sender’s computer connects to the receiver’s network via an SMTP server, which then delivers the message. If this connection isn’t possible, then the sender will not be able to send their message and they will receive a “connection refused” error message on their screen.
But What About Gmail?
Google’s Gmail is a free web-based email service that is easy to use and intuitive. It has many features that are not available with other email services. With Gmail, you can access your emails from any device, and you don’t need to worry about spam or viruses.
Gmail gives its users 1 gigabyte of storage for their emails, which is more than enough for most people. They also offer Gmail SMTP and IMAP support, which means that you can send mail from your GMail account just like any other email address.
It is hard to believe that we have been using email for more than 20 years now. It was in the year 1997 that GMail was first introduced to the world. And it has been one of the most popular email services ever since. But without a solid SMTP server behind it Gmail would be nothing.
