You need to insert a "From:" line in the mail headers.  That's the 
fourth parameter of the mail() function.  Thus, you'd do something 
like:

mail("to at place.com", "subject", "message", "From: from at place.com");

Alternately, you could look at some of the PEAR::Mail functionality, 
which includes some nice APIs.
