PHP mail() function allows you to send mails over a Configured SMTP server.There is no relation with outlook and its ports with php mail.
If you trying to send mails over your Local web server refer to the php.ini file for the SMTP configuration.
Or your web server is a Internet based one check with your vendor whether php mail is enabled or not.

You will need to set up an SMTP server, and configure PHP to work with it before mail() will function correctly.
