You won't be able to do this on Windows unless you use a program which accepts 
sendmail-like input and command parameters. The directive to use is 
php_admin_value sendmail_path "your command line here".

The best way to stop this with other means is to disable mail() and require 
clients to use an smtp class. There's one in PEAR, so anyone can access it.

Oh, I overlooked something. Of course, you could just set "php_admin_value 
sendmail_from address" in each virtual host on Windows. Should work.
