I have a few questions if it's not too much trouble:

I am trying to setup a phpBB site and auction site on my server behind Tor Hidden Services .  Tor Hidden Services anonymizes (via. multiple Onion Route 2 proxy servers) and secures (via. multiple layers of TLS encryption) the connection between the server and all guests.  The IP address of the server and guets is anonymous and all traffic passing between the server and guests is encrypted.

Is it mandatory to setup the mail server in php.ini?

I have installed phpBB on my server and phpBB comes with a mail server.  Can I use phpBB's mail server and not php.ini?

I want to route my email trough the TCP/IP anonymizing program Tor .   I would like to use a non-standard SMTP port, I would like to use port 2525.  

Is it possible to use my ISP's mail server on port 2525 by editing the "smtp_port = 25" line in php.ini?  

Also, I would prefer to use a SMTP program like Mercury32 instead of my ISP's mail server, is this possible?

What 'socks' version does php mail use?

Sorry about these newbie questions :D

Have a great night

php doesn't have a mail server,
it just sends the mails via the server you enterd in php.ini.

Running your own mail server should work. Although most ISP's block port 25 for inbound connections. but sending should work fine.

I have no idea on how to make it work with tor though.
