Not sure how you're using PHP ... but here's a code snippet which works:

// Send email to verify
$message = "Whatever you want to say.";
$to      = "doug at unlikelysource.com";
$subject = "Test Message";
$headers = "From: noreply at unlikelysource.com\r\n" . 
           "X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion();
$body = $message;
$body = wordwrap($body, 40);
if (mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers)) {
        echo "<P>Message Sent Successfully</P>\n";
} else {
        echo "<P>Message Not Sent</P>\n";

Notice the use of the $headers variable.  This is where you can program
in the "From" field to put in anything you want.  The wordwrap()
function is optional.
