Any light anyone can throw on the 'nob...@myserver.com' address would be

It is using the apache user @ your host name as the default.  Try this:

ini_set('sendmail_from', 'whate...@wherever.com');

I will try this but I do not understand why it should work. I have a 'From:...' entry in my headers. Why is this not being used as the primary from address and why is 'nob...@myserver.com' being added instead as the first from address ? In other words, I can understand if I supply no 'From:...' header entry that a default 'nob...@myserver.com' would be used but I do not understand why it is used even when I supply a 'From:...' header entry.

"From: " is used by your mail client to show who it's from.

the ini_set (or you can set the 5th param to the mail() function) is a return-path. If the message bounces (recipient's mailbox full, server down, whatever the reason) it gets delivered to that address. They serve different purposes.

Does ini_set actually change the php.ini file in any way ?

No, it only affects the script it's running in. Comment it out.

Check your mail server logs and/or apache/php logs to see if anything is going there.
