nobody is the default user under whom CGI scripts are executed.

if you want to instead use some other user then try this..
$sender="somebody\@somwhere.com";
$mailprog="/usr/bin/sendmail -t ";

open (MEN,$mailtext) || die "No pude abrir el mensaje";
open(MAIL,"| $mailprog") || die $!;

print MAIL "From: $sender\n";
print MAIL "To: $email\n";
print MAIL "Subject: $subject\n\n";

while (<MEN>){
  print MAIL;
}
close(MAIL);
close(MEN);
