Protocols Interview Questions and Answers
Do you know Electronic messaging was created decades before the internet revolution. In the 1960s people were exploring how to communicate using mainframe computers. The U.S. Government was the first to create a server to transmit email. In the 1970s, the mailbox protocol was developed, which was an early version of SMTP. The modern version of this technology was developed in 1982?
SMPT is responsible for transmitting email across Internet networks (IPs). This
technology is used specifically for sending outgoing email. Clients typically use
applications such as Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) or Post Office Protocol
(POP) to access to their email box. For example, if you send an email it goes to
a mail server using SMTP. The mail client will then deliver it to the user?s mailbox.
