General Information

I'm trying to send an email through my email on webhostinghub but my ISP blocks port 25 connections.

So what i need to know is why is my email not sending when i have done the below:

Sending email using mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers);
Changed my php.ini file to
smtp_port = 465;

What else do i need to do to get this email to send?
