SMTP relay is the service that allows your emails to be sent across the internet to be received by the person you’ve emailed. Consider how many times you email everyday, without considering what is going on behind the scenes.
SMTP relay is effectively a lightening fast sorting system (consider that of a virtual post office) sorting emails and directing these to the correct location. Just like a relay race, the ‘relay’ function is the process of passing the data from the starting point of your email account, to the end point being the person you’ve emailed.
