You can specify a From:  address in the arguments you pass to the mail)
function. The PHP Manual specifies the mail function to take the arguments:

mail(string to, string subject, string message[, string Addt'l Headers])

so there is an optional argument at the end to pass additional headers.  So,
you could use

mail("someone at somedomain.com","Mail Subject","Mail message","From:
you at yourdomain.com\nReply-To: you at yourdomain.com\n");
