I'm not sure what the script does with the -f option and I don't know
which MTA you are using..
Did you check the headers of the mail? A mail can contain sender
information in both the envelope (what the MTA gets) and the header.
What is set to which value?
Lots of systems do prevent unprivileged users from "spoofing" the sender
address, you have to be a "trusted mail user" for that. Consult your
MTA's documentation if that applies for you as well - but I'm not sure
if you want to add the apache user to that list..

HTH,
Ben
