Isn't php a programming language?  Can you not code your php function
to set the From:, Sender: and Reply-To: headers to anything you like?

I do that inside Gnu Emacs via the Emacs config file.  There're still
a couple of Received: headers that show my originating hostname as
bogus.nodomain.nowhere but with a real IP address and matching, legit,
dynamic hostname.

If you had posted from the affected address/sendmail instead of gmail,
we might be able to deduce something useful from your headers.
