RTFM. :)

http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php

bool mail ( string to, string subject, string message [, string
additional_headers [, string additional_parameters]] )

additional_parameters (optional)
 The additional_parameters parameter can be used to pass an additional
parameter to the program configured to use when sending mail using the
sendmail_path configuration setting. For example, this can be used to set
the envelope sender address when using sendmail with the -f sendmail
option.
 The user that the webserver runs as should be added as a trusted user to
the sendmail configuration to prevent a 'X-Warning' header from being
added to the message when the envelope sender (-f) is set using this
method. For sendmail users, this file is /etc/mail/trusted-users.

Example 3. Sending mail with an additional command line parameter.
 The additional_parameters parameter can be used to pass an additional
parameter to the program configured to use when sending mail using the
sendmail_path.
 <?php
 mail('nobody at example.com', 'the subject', 'the message', null,
    '-fwebmaster at example.com');
 ?>
