I think that the problem is that you have "NO_ANONYMOUS_EMAIL"
defined in userdefs.h. Although the information there doesn't mention
it, I believe it stops you from specifying the FROM address. See
LYMail.c, line 1604 in the dev.18 code. Try recompiling with the
NO_ANONYMOUS_EMAIL define commented out and see if this changes the
behavior to what you want.
