The email correctly arrives in the mailbox [EMAIL PROTECTED] (so the alias
worked) but the from address is "[EMAIL PROTECTED] - why
isn't the from address [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Because you didn't include any headers in the DATA section of the SMTP conversation.

Try adding "From: [EMAIL PROTECTED]" and "To: John <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>" and maybe even a subject. Don't forget a blank line before the body ("Test").
