How to add email servern & port into this PHP

I have a PHP code at my server in which if data is added to the database, it sends a mail to the admin. Recently I bought a webhosting and uploaded my files. Problem is my mails from the server were getting delayed so I asked the webhosting. They said me to add this "" and port 25 in my PHP to receive the mail fast. I don't have much knowledge of PHP. Can you help me where to insert this in the code below:


// get data
$name = $_POST['name'];
$alamat = $_POST['alamat'];
$kota = $_POST['kota'];
$provinsi = $_POST['provinsi'];
$name2 = $_POST['name2'];
$date_n_time = $_POST['date_n_time'];
$phone = $_POST['phone'];
$order_list = $_POST['order_list'];
$comment = $_POST['comment'];
$emails = $_POST['email'];

$sql_query = "set names 'utf8'";
$stmt = $connect->stmt_init();
if($stmt->prepare($sql_query)) {
// Execute query
// store result

// insert data into reservation table
$sql_query = "INSERT INTO tbl_reservation(Name, Alamat, Kota, Provinsi, Number_of_people, Date_n_Time, Phone_number, Order_list, Comment, Email)
VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)";

$stmt = $connect->stmt_init();
if($stmt->prepare($sql_query)) {
// Bind your variables to replace the ?s
// Execute query
$result = $stmt->affected_rows;
// store result
//$result = $stmt->store_result();

// get admin email from user table
$sql_query = "SELECT Email
FROM tbl_user";

$stmt = $connect->stmt_init();
if($stmt->prepare($sql_query)) {
// Execute query
// store result

// if new reservation has been successfully added to reservation table
// send notification to admin via email
$to = $emails;
$subject = $reservation_subject_2;
$message .= "Dear " .$provinsi."\r\n";
$message .= $reservation_message_2."\r\n\n";
$message .= "Pick Drop :" .$name2."\r\n";

$from = $admin_email;
$headers = "From:" . $from."\r\n".
echo "OK";
echo "Failed";


Your code is using PHP's built in mail() command to send the message - you can see that line almost at the end of your code:


The server and port that mail() uses are configured in PHP's configuration file, php.ini. You may be able to override those settings by adding this to your code - anywhere above the mail() line.

ini_set('SMTP', '');
ini_set('smtp_port', 25);

If you want to use that server/port always, from other PHP code, you'll either need to make the same change in the other files that send mail, or update the main php.ini configuration file.
